The short-lived 1945 musical The Day Before Spring, with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe, will replace the previously announced Dance a Little Closer as part of the 2019 Winter Musicals in Mufti series at The York Theatre Company at Saint Peter’s (East 54th Street, east of Lexington Avenue).
The forthcoming series will celebrate Lerner with a look at three of his musicals, performed in simply staged, book-in-hand concert formats: Carmelina (January 26–February 3, 2019), The Day Before Spring (February 9–17), and Lolita, My Love (February 23–March 3).
In The Day Before Spring, a married woman attends a college reunion where she encounters the man with whom she almost eloped ten years before. Romantically stirred by a novel he has written about her, she considers leaving her husband and reuniting with her former flame.
