A sparkling homage to a bygone era, "The Music Man" follows fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying band instruments and uniforms for a boys' band he vows to organize - despite the fact he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans are foiled when he falls for spirited Marian the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain's fall.

With songs such as "Seventy-Six Trombones," "Till There Was You" and "Lida Rose," this award-winning classic boasts a brilliant, nostalgic score of rousing marches, barbershop quartets and sentimental ballads that have earned a place among musical theater's most cherished standards.

"The Music Man" is based on a story by Meredith Willson and Frank Lacey with book, music and lyrics by Meredith Willson.
