Description

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.”**
