He's charismatic and charming — no wonder con man Harold Hill assumes he can easily fleece the stubborn citizens of River City, Iowa with the grand promise of a marching band. But the smooth-talking swindler can't tell a trombone from a treble clef and Marian, the local librarian, knows it. In his attempt to steal her heart (and save his hide), Harold learns a thing or two about moral responsibility and unexpectedly enriches the town with a love of music.
Mary Zimmerman (Wonderful Town) brings her magic touch to The Music Man and creates a joyous musical masterpiece at the Goodman Theatre. With music and lyrics by Meredith Willson and a book by Willson and Franklin Lacey, enjoy memorable songs, including "Goodnight My Someone," "76 Trombones," "Gary, Indiana," and "Till There Was You."
