On The Town

Posted by Emily Duguay for Theatre

On The Town, the energetic wartime musical about three sailors on a 24-hour leave in New York City, features thrilling music by Leonard Bernstein with playful lyrics and book by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. The show's celebrated score includes a number of musical theatre standards, including "Come Up to My Place," "I Can Cook, Too," "Some Other Time" and "New York, New York."

“[It]'ll make you want to fall in love with the city — and musical theater — all over again. This is one walk down memory lane you’ll want to take.” – Dave Quinn, NBC New York


“When did you last see a big-budget musical that made you want to shout with joy?... everything a great show should be...On the Town is one of the Broadway musicals that I love best.” – Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal
