New Village Arts (NVA), North County’s cultural hub, is proud to be producing this loving tribute to Leonard Bernstein’s work as a composer. Conceived and arranged by Broadway conductor, music director, and arranger Rob Fisher, Leonard Bernstein’s New York features memorable songs from WEST SIDE STORY, ON THE TOWN, WONDERFUL TOWN, and many more.

The two-character show explores Bernstein’s relationship with New York City; his famous New York friends such as Stephen Sondheim, Betty Comden, Adolph Green, Jerome Robbins, and Aaron Copland; and the impact that New York had on Bernstein’s music, life and relationships.
