Tom Jones - Broadway

Based on the novel by Henry Fielding

Women can’t keep their hands off Tom Jones, a man of unknown parentage but undeniable charm. Tom’s heart belongs to the virtuous Sophia Western, but when he finds himself the center of female attention and all manner of romantic complication, everything seems to stand between the two. Former Producing Director Jon Jory returns with his rollicking adaptation of Henry Fielding’s classic comic tale of scandal, sword fighting and the bewildering power of love.
