The Kennedy Center will be showing the award-winning musical, “The Music Man,” at the Eisenhower Theater on February 6-11.
Winner of six Tony Awards, the musical stars Norm Lewis, Jessie Mueller, Rosie O’Donnell, and features 28 performers and 20 musicians.
The musical follows the journey of a traveling salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, making them buy instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band that he promises to organize, even though he can’t tell musical instruments apart.
“His plans to skip town are foiled when he falls for Marian, the town librarian,” says the musical brief.
