THE MUSIC MAN Revival Still On Schedule for Fall 2020

THE MUSIC MAN Revival Still On Schedule for Fall 2020

The revival of Meredith Willson's beloved classic, The Music Man starring two-time Tony Award, Grammy Award, and Emmy Award-winning star Hugh Jackman as Harold Hill and two-time Tony Award winner Sutton Foster as Marian Paroo, is still on schedule to hit Broadway this fall.

The show's choreographer Warren Carlyle tells Page Six, "Our opening's fortunately not now, so we're not panicking because we're scheduled for October...We're just prepping as much as we can. Working the computer, working the phone, planning out whatever we can manage to rehearse. What else can you do?"

The show is currently scheduled to open at the Winter Garden Theatre- the current home of Beetlejuice- on October 15, 2020. Previews are set to begin on September 9.

One of the most universally cherished treasures of the American musical theater, The Music Man was an instant smash hit when it premiered on Broadway on December 19, 1957. It went on to win five Tony Awards, including the prize for Best Musical, and ran for 1,375 performances. The original cast album held the number one position on the Billboard charts and stayed on the album charts for 245 weeks. The recording won the first-ever Grammy Award for Best Original Cast Album. In 1962, the show was adapted into a hugely successful movie, which has remained a classic for over 60 years. The Smithsonian Institution ranks The Music Man as one of the "great glories of American popular culture."

The Music Man reunites the creative team of the Tony Award-winning and record-breaking revival of Hello, Dolly! starring Bette Midler, including (in addition to Rudin, Zaks, and Carlyle), four-time Tony Award winner Santo Loquasto (Scenic & Costume Design), six-time Tony Award winner Natasha Katz (Lighting Design), Tony Award winner Scott Lehrer (Sound Design), and David Chase (Dance Arrangements). Tony Award winner Jonathan Tunick will create Orchestrations, and Patrick Vaccariello joins the team as The Music Man's Musical Director.
