On the Town is a madcap comedy from the creative brains of Leonard Bernstein and Jerome Robbins. It chronicles the misadventures of three rambunctious sailors let loose on a 24-hour shore leave in New York City. Performed in conjunction with the Spectrum Dance Theater, this performance features a star-studded cast of local and New York actors belting out Broadway classics such as “New York, New York,” and “I Can Cook Too” in one joyful evening of music, dance, and flirty romance.
The historic 5th Avenue Theatre (a former host to vaudeville shows) provides the ideal backdrop to watch On the Town unfold. Originally penned in 1944, this timeless tale still makes modern audiences think happy thoughts. If this family-friendly show were a motion picture, it would be rated PG, would feature a finely tuned sound system, and would be presented in a hyper-realistic 3-D technology called “real life.”
