The Story

On the Town, the energetic wartime musical set in 1944 about three sailors on a 24-hour leave in New York City, features thrilling music by Bernstein with playful lyrics and book by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. With brash, spectacular, and slightly bittersweet abandon, On the Town is a tale about seizing the day and living life to its fullest. Beloved both for its moment in history and for its timeless qualities of youth and exuberance, 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.”

Come celebrate the 100th Birthday of the amazingly talented Leonard Bernstein with us!
