Based on the 1908 novel by E.M. Forster, this adaptation combines gorgeous new music with a classic story, and adheres closer to the original novel than the 1985 movie, which starred Helena Bonham Carter as the sheltered English girl Lucy Honeychurch, who's introduced to passion and love while vacationing in Tuscany. While the unforgettable Edwardian characters remain, this enchanting production takes the story to lofty heights through a terrific score and memorable new songs. When Honeychurch meets the free-spirited George Emerson, she must decide whether to remain in the life that has been chosen for her, or break free and give up everything she knows in the name of love.

We enjoyed the show, the acting and dancing were excellent...but I found the show to be TOOO long ! (The first act alone is 1 1/2 hours) It seems as if they stretched out the night club scenes forever! However, it is a fun night at the theater and a look back at what was popular in 1944.
On The Town
Music by Leonard Bernstein
Book and Lyrics by Betty Comden & Adolph Green
Based on an idea by *Jerome Robbins
**"New York, New York… It’s a helluva town!"
Paint the Big Apple red with three sailors as they try to cram a lifetime of romance and excitement into a day-long adventure in the city that never sleeps! Inspired by Jerome Robbins’ ballet Fancy Free, this is a madcap musical valentine to New York City and a delightful musical treat from the composer of West Side Story and the writers of Singin’ In The Rain. Start spreadin’ the news – this is one helluva show!
Featuring the songs “New York, New York,” “Some Other Time,” and “I Can Cook Too.”**
