The Music Man
August 11 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:30 pm on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, repeating until August 15, 2019
Coming to Chicago’s Goodman Theatre for Independence Week, the All-American classic The Music Man is a Tony-winning musical-comedy-romance that follows the adventures of fast-talking “Professor” Harold Hill. The charming con man plans to trick the good people of an Iowa town into buying instruments for a boys’ band he has no intention of organizing, then marching off with their hard-earned cash. But there’s trouble right there in River City when he becomes fond of the townspeople and falls for the lovely Marian the Librarian, even as she begins to see through his scheme. Mary Zimmerman (The Jungle Book, Wonderful Town) brings her magic touch to “one of the sunniest musicals ever” (The New York Times), including memorable favorites like “Goodnight My Someone,” “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “Gary, Indiana” and “Till There Was You.”
