Why See Music Man?
When con man Harold Hill strolls into River City, Iowa, with a scheme to fool the locals into buying uniforms and instruments for a fictional boy?s band, he gets more than he bargained for.
While the rest of town is suckered in by Hill?s plan to clean up the town's youth, the town?s librarian Marian sees right through his act, but finds herself falling head-over-heels in love with him - in spite of herself! With book, music, and lyrics by Meredith Willson, The Music Man features countless beloved songs including ?Ya Got Trouble,? ?Goodnight My Someone,? ??Til There Was You,? and of course, ?76 Trombones.?
In 1958, the musical took home a staggering 8 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and racked up a grand total of 1,375 performances on Broadway before dropping the curtain a final time in 1961.It has since had two Broadway revivals in 1980 and 2001. The 2012-13 5th Avenue production will star Seattle native and Broadway performer Noah Racey as the charismatic and charming Harold Hill, who teams up with a cast of Seattle stars.
