The Music Man won both Tony and Academy Awards and for good reason. This tribute to life in a small Iowa town in 1912 is filled with memorable characters and songs. The musical may be old-fashioned in its humor and sentiment, but it feels amazingly original and new in its use of music, dance, and characters to tell the tale of a salesman who hoodwinks and charms the suspicious town of River City, Iowa into entrusting their money and children to a modern day Pied Piper.
The Music Man contains among the most memorable songs of Broadway, including “76 Trombones,” “Goodnight, My Someone,” “Lida Rose,” and “Gary, Indiana,” to name a few. Bring your family and friends of all ages to see this All-American classic! There’s every reason for everyone to attend!
