On The Town Broadway

This fall, one of America's greatest musical comedies is docking at Broadway's beautifully restored Lyric Theatre in the heart of Times Square! With the biggest orchestra on Broadway and a 30-member cast of New York's most talented singers and dancers, ON THE TOWN tells the story of three wide-eyed sailors on a whirlwind musical tour of the city that never sleeps. 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). Come see what all the buzz is about, and spend a spectacular evening...ON THE TOWN!
