With just 24 hours of shore leave, they're eager to experience all that New York City has to offer... including a chance to discover love with the girl of their dreams.Directed by Tony winner JOHN RANDO (Urinetown, A Christmas Story) and choreographed by Emmy winner JOSHUA BERGASSE ("Smash"), this big, brassy musical comedy features a beloved LEONARD BERNSTEIN score, lyrics by COMDEN AND GREEN, and breathtaking dancing inspired by the original JEROME ROBBINS choreography. Arriving on Broadway following a critically acclaimed out-of-town run, On The Town is "one of those rare revivals that remind us what a hit show was originally all about" (The New York Times).
