Helen Hayes/Queens Theatre in the Park/Emelin Theatres, NY

“What a wonderful idea it was for the midsize Helen Hayes Theatre in Nyack, N.Y. to revive the Cy Coleman-Michael Stewart hit 1977 Broadway musical I Love My Wife. Cy Coleman is an idiosyncratic, jazz oriented composer of some of the loosest, swingingest music to be heard in the American musical. He has composed a thoroughly delightful, intoxicating, toe tapping score for I Love My Wife, and it is wonderful to be able to hear it on stage again. Jazz, honky tonk, barrel house, a cross of Latin dance beat and rock, country, a march, ballads and more, and everyone’s a winner.”

“I Love My Wife is being produced in association with the Queens Theatre in the Park and the Emelin Theatre, and engagements at those theatres will follow its current engagement in Nyack. Audiences at all three theatres can look forward to solid musical entertainment.”

Gary John La Rosa’s choreography is the most true-to-life element of the production...”
