Irish Rep presents the musical, Meet Me in St. Louis, directed by Charlotte Moore with music direction by John Bell and choreography by Barry McNabb. Adapted from Sally Benson's short vignettes entitled "5135 Kensington," Meet Me in St. Louis is the story of the Smith family as they eagerly anticipate the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis just after the turn of the century. Optimism and young love are severely tested and of course, finally triumph as the story unfolds with the background of the Great Louisiana Purchase Exhibition never far from the hearts and minds of the Smith Family. Like the legendary 1944 film, the stage adaptation offers some of the most beloved songs of the American Musical: "The Boy Next Door, "The Trolley Song," and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas." Book by Hugh Wheeler and songs by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane.
