I have said it before – musical theatre is far from my favorite genre and The Music Man is definitely on the short list of my least liked musicals. But other people LOVE it. So if you are in the LOVE it camp this is good news…
Virginia Repertory Theatre announces the opening of The Music Man at the Sara Belle and Neil November Theatre on Friday, June 28 with a Preview on June 27. The show runs through August 4, 2013. Part of the “Broadway at the November” Series, The Music Man is the all-American quintessential summer musical with book, music, and lyrics by Meredith Wilson. The score features favorite tunes such as “Seventy-Six Trombones”, “Ya Got Trouble”, and “Goodnight My Someone”. The story of Harold Hill, who attempts to con the naive townsfolk of River City, Iowa, and the unlikely courtship with librarian, Marian Paroo, is a sentimental classic. The original Broadway hit in 1957 won five Tony Awards including “Best Musical”.
“Celebrity Saturdays” will feature walk-on cameo appearances by some of Richmond’s favorite celebrities during the Saturday evening performances, and patrons can enjoy specially made local Dixie Donuts during most performances and ice cream during our “Sundae Matinees”.
