His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain's fall. This Broadway classic is an all-American institution, thanks to is quirky characters and a one-of-a-kind, nostalgic score of rousing marches, barbershop quartets and sentimental ballads. Funny, warm, romantic and touching, THE MUSIC MAN is family entertainment at its best!
