North Shore Music Theater presents the American premiere of Tom Jones: The Musical, featuring book and Lyrics by Paul Leigh and music by George Stiles.
It was a classic comic novel by Henry Fielding, then a hit movie starring Albert Finney. Now it's a rambunctious and bawdy new musical by George Stiles, composer of NSMT premieres Honk! and Just So. Born on the wrong side of the sheets, Tom is a likable lad with one small problem - he can't say no to beautiful women. His passions get him thrown out of his home and into big trouble with his true love, Sophia. Can young Tom resist temptation for just one day? Will there be a happy ending? Can true love prevail? The answers to these and other questions will become hilariously clear when this spirited new musical debuts in June.
