'The Music Man,' starring Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster, releases new block of Broadway tickets
Tickets are now on sale through November 27.
The big parade is going on longer! The six-time Tony-nominated revival of The Music Man, starring Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster, has put a new block of Broadway tickets on sale. Tickets are now available for performances through November 27.
Jackman stars as Professor Harold Hill, a con man who poses as a music teacher to swindle small-town residents out of their money. His latest target is River City, Iowa, and while most of the town is fooled by his charm, one person isn't — the local librarian and piano teacher, Marian Paroo, played by Foster. Her plans to expose his scheme, however — and his to skip town and get away with it — are thwarted when they fall for each other.
The Music Man earned a Best Revival of a Musical Tony nomination in 2022, in addition to nominations for Jackman, Foster, and Jayne Houdyshell's performances, Santo Loquasto's costumes, and Warren Carlyle's choreography. The four-star New York Theatre Guide review reads, "Choreography from Warren Carlyle is smartly portioned into knockout numbers — “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “Marian the Librarian” — that meet the weight of their anticipation with a vocabulary of movement that’s refined and sensual, playful and fresh."
Jerry Zaks directs The Music Man, which is playing at the Winter Garden Theatre.
