WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A co-production between New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark and Two River Theater in Red Bank, New Jersey.
Featuring an all African-American cast, one of Broadway's most beloved musicals is revived in an exciting new concert version, directed by Obie Award winner Robert O'Hara.
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 Marian Paroo in the summer of 1912 as he bamboozles the townsfolk of River City, Iowa into financing a marching band.
Don't miss this production that will delight audiences in both Newark & Red Bank with hit songs such as " Seventy-six Trombones," "Goodnight, My Someone" and "Till There Was You" under the music direction of Kenny Seymour (Broadway's Tony-winning Best Musical Memphis).
The company will include 11 actors, some of whom will double in the six-piece onstage band.
