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
Clarinet prodigy Dave Bennett leads his All-Star Septet through Benny Goodman's big hits and swing-era classics: "Moonglow," "I've Got Rhythm," "Body and Soul," "Slipped Disc," "Sing, Sing, Sing," and many others. Bennett brings new life to the music of the "King of Swing" with incredible technique, expression and sensitivity. Vocals made famous by such Goodman singers as Peggy Lee and Helen Forrest are "sung and swung" by jazz singer Anne Seabury. Couples who love to dance are encouraged to come in their best "swing-era" clothes and join the band on the dance floor! (Space is limited!)
