WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Featuring an all African-American cast, one of Broadway's most beloved musicals is revived in an exciting new concert version, including such hits as "Seventy-six Trombones," "Goodnight, My Someone" and "Till There Was You."
NJPAC and Two River Theater Company in Red Bank co-present this concert version of America's favorite musical about big brass bands and small-town spirit. Directed by Obie Award winner Robert O'Hara, Meredith Willson's The Music Man will be performed for audiences in both Newark and Red Bank.
Winner of Best Musical at the 1957 Tony Awards, The Music Man tells the story of con man Harold Hill, who falls for piano teacher and librarian Marian Paroo in the summer of 1912 as he bamboozles the townsfolk of River City, Iowa into financing a marching band. "Professor" Hill has to choose between the promise of romance and a quick getaway as his scheme begins to unravel.
