BWW Review: MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS Trollies The Muny Into Its Next 100 VideoBWW Review: MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS Trollies The Muny Into Its Next 100
by Tanya Seale - Aug 6, 2018

Meet Me In St. Louis is the picture-perfect nostalgic closer for The Muny's centennial season, a romantic musical based on the 1944 film that follows the Smith family through 1903 and into the new year as they await the opening of the 1904 World's Fair. The plot is a bit old fashioned by modern standards, but focuses on family, friendship, and love, and pays an affectionate tribute to a bygone era in St. Louis history.
