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

We were a little disappointed. Both of my girls have done Flat Stanley projects through the school in the third grade. They rated the show 4 and 4.7 out of ten. There were two people next to us that snored through some of it. I'm sure that's what they will tell people about it! My youngest will be seeing the show again with her class---I'm sorry I didn't find out sooner so she wouldn't have to sit through it again. The venue itself is first class with great seats all around.
Stanley Lambchop is your ordinary, every day, run-of-the-mill ten-year-old: normal mom and dad, normal little brother, normal life. That's just the problem – For Stanley, life is too normal. He wants to travel the world, do something amazing, something no one's ever seen before. Careful what you wish for, Stanley! One night, the bulletin board on the wall above Stanley's bed comes loose and falls. Right on top of Stanley! And the next morning, Stanley Lambchop wakes up flat. Not just a little flat… Really, really flat. At first it’s not so bad. He can slide under locked doors, roll up like a mat, become a trampoline. His friends fly him like a kite. And Stanley’s the best in his class at hide-and-seek: He just turns to the side and virtually disappears. But he can't stay flat forever – someone has to do something. And that someone is Stanley! Stanley puts himself in a big envelope and travels the world – a human letter!
And the adventure begins!
In a whirlwind musical travelogue, Stanley – the ultimate pen pal – scours the globe for a solution to his unusual problem. He’s stamped, posted and cancelled from Washington D.C. to France to Mexico to South Africa and beyond. And whether he's rapping with the Declaration of Independence, thwarting robberies at the Louvre Museum in Paris, or learning about different cultures through song and dance, Stanley is closing in on his goal of being a three-dimensional boy once more.
