Show Details & Reviews
With book, music and lyrics by Meredith Wilson, The Music Man is the story of con man Harold Hill, who pretends to be a band organizer, selling instruments and uniforms with the promise of teaching boys how to play. Hill’s ultimate play is to skip town with the money, but love gets in the way.
The biggest hype around The Music Man is star Hugh Jackman’s return to Broadway. Jackman is a two-time Tony Award, Grammy Award and Emmy Award winner. He’ll play opposite two-time Tony Award winner Sutton Foster. The star-studded cast will be directed by Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks and choreography is by Tony Award winner Warren Carlyle.
The Music Man originally premiered on Broadway in 1957, and it went on to win five Tony Awards and played 1,375 performances. It is the story of a con man who falls in love with the local librarian and risks being exposed to be with her.
