Show Summary
On The Town is the story of three sailors during World War II who are on leave for 24-hours only in New York City. From the Brooklyn Navy Yard to Carnegie Hall, they sing and dance their way through some of the Big Apples’s most iconic locations, enjoying the sights, the sounds, and of course, the beautiful women. After a fair amount of struggle in their search for love, all three sailors eventually find their perfect match. With a wonderful score of catchy and classic tunes, as well as archetypal Broadway choreography, the show is a light-hearted musical comedy sure to be fun for the whole family.

Originally premiering on Broadway in 1944, On The Town has also been made into a major motion-picture in 1949, although the Hollywood production substituted many of the iconic songs from the original. After opening on September 20, 2014 the revival of On The Town recaptures the essence that made the original so successful. The audience is sure to be appeased by the nostalgic setting of 1940’s New York City, as three sailors in the midst of the war are allowed a reprieve from the rigors of sea-duty as they enjoy their night on the town.

On The Town Ensemble Cast Dancing
  What Is On The Town Like?
The show includes such classic Broadway songs as “New York, New York,” “I Can Cook, Too,” and “Lonely Town.” With book and lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, and a musical score by Leonard Bernstein, the show has enjoyed a slew of major revivals since its 1944 Broadway premiere. This is credit to the musical’s enduring quality, as though it may be considered dated by some, it is undoubtedly entertaining and its themes are still relevant today. On the Town was made into a 1949 film of the same concept, although all but three of the songs were re-written for the Hollywood movie project, which was a sad loss given the amazingly catchy Leonard Bernstein score.

Is On The Town Good for Kids?

This Broadway show does include themes that may be too mature for very young children, such as the idea of searching for love for one-day-only. Though the production has not yet announced their specific policies, the show is probably best for children over the age of 8 and adults of all ages.

  On The Town - Broadway Show Press Reviews:

"On The Town with youthful high spirits from the music, empathy from the actors, and comedy firing on all cylinders.” - Steven Suskin, Variety

“Normally, I wouldn’t tell citizens of the five boroughs to drive three hours to be told that New York is a helluva town. but this enchanted vision of a city that was – and of course never was – is worth catching before it evaporates.” - Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“The dance numbers are electrifying and the songs are by turns loony (‘carried away,’ ‘come up to my place’) and tender (‘lucky to be me,’ ‘some other time’). sure, the plot's rickety-rackety, but with so much unmixed pleasure to be had along the way, who cares?” - Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal
