In Your Face—New York got its start as a prototype production at the Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theater in New York. Lily Tomlin joined Soledad O’Brien and Misha Dichter for the launch of this star-studded show. Musical Director Jay Leonhart put together a tight, brilliant brand and introduced the catchy In Your Face-New York theme. Dr. Josh Bazell left the audience agitated and distressed with his description of how New Yorkers co-exist with rats and Arturo O’Farrill brought terrific salsa sounds to a cheering audience.
