Recently, iHeartRadio Broadway got to sit down with the Classic Stage Company's cast of I Can Get It For You Wholesale. The cast discusses working with their amazing castmates and revising this 1962 musical for a new generation. Watch our interview in the player above!
It's 1937 in New York City's Garment District, and shipping clerk Harry Bogen would love to sell you a bill of goods. In this dark musical comedy, Bronx-born Harry must choose between the comfort of community and his own ambitious dreams. He'll have to do whatever it takes to get ahead, and even more to stay there. Better watch your back – sewing needles can be sharp.
