'The Music Man,' starring Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster, releases rehearsal photos, unveils new marquee

The musical begins Broadway performances December 20.

The Music Man

The revival of Meredith Willson's The Music Man is in rehearsals for its Broadway run, starring Hugh Jackman as Professor Harold Hill and Sutton Foster as Marian Paroo. Performances begin at the Winter Garden Theatre on December 20 ahead of a February 10 opening night.

In The Music Man, the con man Harold Hill sells instruments and uniforms to hopeful bands, claiming to be a music instructor that will guide them to success, only to disappear the minute he makes a sale. When he arrives in River City, the librarian Marian catches onto his scheme — but her plans to stop him are thwarted when she finds herself falling for Harold.

The show has released photos of Jackman, Foster, and the creative team in rehearsal. In addition, a new marquee for The Music Man is now up in front of the theatre. See all the photos below!
