The Music Man first ran on Broadway for four years featuring Robert Preston and won five Tony Awards in 1957.  The show has returned to Broadway multiple times with the most recent performances starring movie and Broadway superstars, Hugh Jackman and Foster Sutton, running through 2022 and closing January 15 of this year.

The story of The Music Man features a fast-talking con man, Harold Hill, who is challenged to take on the strait-laced and colorful characters of small-town River City, Iowa.  He has to face the stubborn townsfolk and especially River City’s librarian and piano teacher, Marian Paroo, who is intent on exposing him as a fake.  The musical features a large cast from 6 to 60+ in age, who all get to learn how these town characters interact with someone from outside their community, while dealing with their own beliefs about others in their own town.  The songs are well-known, Trouble (the first real rap song?), Lida Rose, Till There Was You, and of course, 76 Trombones.  The music is amazing and will include a 20+-piece live orchestra. The dancing is fun and lively, and the story is endearing and meaningful.  Indeed, the Hollywood Reporter said of the latest Broadway version, “…the show ironically feels urgently timely.”  It’s a great show that will be enjoyed by all ages.
