On the Town
Sailors Ozzie, Chip, and Gabey are finally on shore leave in The Big Apple, and they have just 24 hours to experience New York City, including a chance to discover love with the girl of their dreams. The comedy first charmed audiences as a ballet called Fancy Free, then a musical whose sparkling Leonard Bernstein numbers—including “New York, New York”—have become as iconic as the narrative itself, then as a film starring Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra before being revived on Broadway again.
Under the direction of Tony-winner John Rando, the performance of the sailors’ romantic quest is praised by the Wall Street Journal saying “The dance numbers are electrifying,” while the work of choreographer Joshua Bergasse nods to the story’s first balletic iteration while adding some heat. The New York Times has said the show is “one of those rare revivals that remind us what a hit show from long ago was originally all about” and that “you’ll be whisked back to a time when New York, New York, was a wonderland of pleasure, romance and hot fun”.
