What, you may ask, is “popular demand”? “Popular demand” is when we’ve been selling so many tickets for The Connector in its world premiere production at MCC Theater that we have extended our run by another two weeks (having extended it once already). Daisy, Jonathan and I have been working so hard on this show for so long, and we are so proud and delighted that it is playing every night to sold-out houses filled with folks who are spreading the word that this is a special experience, an important artistic achievement, and an unmissable event in New York theater. (Those aren’t my words. Although I have to admit I do agree with them.)

So now you can see The Connector, with its magnificent cast and its extraordinary design and its sensational orchestra, through March 17. And then we have to close because the theater has another show coming in and I have to go to London to do a concert at the London Palladium with Cynthia Erivo, so that’s last call at MCC, you don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here.

And if you need any more enticement (beyond these amazing photos by Joan Marcus) allow me to direct you to Sarah Bahr’s fantastic interview with me, Daisy and Sherm from The New York Times.

And you might also enjoy watching the hosts of The View fall hopelessly in love with our star, Scott Bakula, the most charming man on Earth.

But I hope you’ll come because it’s my favorite score of anything I’ve ever written for the theater, and it is a singular joy to play it every night with this extraordinary company. I’ve never had a more joyful, collaborative, respectful, creative experience in my entire career in show business, and I’d love to share it with you. Get your tickets here, and thank you for supporting my music. It means the world.
