About This Show

Powered by Leonard Bernstein, Betty Comden and Adolph Green, this whimsical love letter to Manhattan finds Ruth, an aspiring journalist, and her sister Eileen, a bombshell actress, leaving Ohio determined to conquer New York City in 1935. Roughing it in a dingy Manhattan basement apartment isn’t quite how the sisters imagined living, but they can’t resist the city’s bustling energy and soon find their professional and romantic hopes coming true. Chock-full of swinging show tunes and spectacular choreography, Wonderful Town captures the thrill of chasing one’s dreams like no other musical.
