The Music Man

The Music Man

Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster return to Broadway in a grand revival of one of the most beloved musicals ever written, Meredith Wilson’s The Music Man. The Music Man tickets will be available on New York Theatre Guide soon.

When Harold Hill arrives in River City, Iowa promising uniforms, instruments and lessons for a new town band, the locals are thrilled. In reality, Hill is a conman who plans to leave River City as soon as he closes the sale. But those plans change when Hill meets Marian Paroo, or ‘Marian the Librarian,’ and finds himself falling for her. Soon Hill must follow through on his big promises or else lose out on his chance at love.

The creative team behind the beloved 2017 revival of Hello, Dolly! reunites for another sumptuous revival of a classic musical. Jerry Zaks directs and Warren Carlyle choreographs this lavish revival at Broadway’s Winter Garden Theatre, which promises the best of Broadway: gorgeous sets, big production numbers and majestic dancing. 

Broadway royalty Jackman and Foster both return to Broadway for the first time since 2014. Jackman last appeared on stage in Jez Butterworth’s play The River at Circle in the Square Theatre. He was won two Tony Awards, along with hosting the ceremony four times. Foster last appeared on Broadway in a revival of Jeanine Tesori’s Violet. She has been nominated for six Tony Awards and has won the Best Actress in a Musical category twice for Anything Goes and Thoroughly Modern Millie.

The Music Man musical first premiered on Broadway in 1957, running for 1,375 performances and winning the Tony Award for Best Musical. The cast album won a Grammy for Best Musical Theatre Album and ranked on the Billboard charts for 245 weeks. The Music Man on Broadway was last revived at the Neil Simon Theatre in 2000 starring Craig Bierko and Rebecca Luker, in a hit production that was nominated for nine Tony Awards. 

Tickets to The Music Man will be available soon.

About The Music Man:

The Music Man follows con man Harold Hill, who poses as a musician and hatches a plot to sell gullible musical instruments and uniforms to townsfolk in the Midwest with the promise to train them and turn them into credible bands. His intentions, however, are to skip town before he gives a single music lesson. Marian, a local librarian and piano teacher, sees right through him and threatens to out him... until the two end up falling in love, of course.
