Every day is opening night.

Mallory Portnoy and Nick Blaemire

A Party with Betty Comden and Adolph Green, the hottest event in New York, will run at the Cafe Carlyle this Sunday and Monday March 3 and 4. Mallory Portnoy and Nick Blaemire, the stars of the show, are reprising the roles they so fantastically played in Bradley Cooper‘s seven-time Academy Award Nominated movie, Maestro.

You either know Comden and Green’s work, or you don’t know that you know their work. Singin’ In The Rain? That’s them. On The Town? That’s them too. A Wonderful Town? Also them. You get the picture.
