Broadway star Davis Gaines, who reigns supreme with his run of more than 2,000 performances as The Phantom of the Opera, takes the title role in Musical Theatre West's revival of this all-time family favorite, a romantic comedy perfect for Valentine's season. The Music Man follows fast-talking salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments for a boys' band he vows to organize -- despite the fact that he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. The Tony-winning musical boasts a rousing score from Meredith Wilson, with memorable tunes like "Seventy-Six Trombones," "Ya Got Trouble," "Till There Was You" and "Goodnight, My Someone." Learn More
