Open Air Theatre, Inner Circle, Regent's Park, London, NW1 4NR
Broadway hit musical On the Town comes to Regents Park Open Air Theatre.
New York, New York, it’s a helluva town!
Olivier Award-winner Drew McOnie directs and choreographs a lavish new production of On The The Town.
From the first notes of “New York, New York” this bright and bouncy musical reminds you why composer Leonard Bernstein and lyricists/librettists Betty Comden and Adolph Green were masters of their craft.
If you love classic musical theater songs and great dancing, On the Town is the show for you!
On the Town will run from 19 May 2017 until 1 July 2017 at Regents Park Open Air Theatre.
It’s 1944, and a trio of sailors arrives in New York City for 24 hours of shore leave, eager to see the sights and meet pretty girls. On the subway, Gabey spots a poster of “Miss Turnstiles,” Ivy Smith, and instantly becomes obsessed with meeting her. Elsewhere, Chip takes a ride with an outgoing cab driver named Hildy, and Ozzie meets anthropologist Claire de Loone at the Museum of Natural History. By the next morning, the guys and their gals have enjoyed a night of dance and romance in some of the city’s hottest nightclubs, an adventure none of them will ever forget.
The cast is led by Danny Mac, Fred Haig and Jeremy Taylor alongside Siena Kelly, Lizzy Connolly and Miriam-Teak Lee.
Also featuring are Maggie Steed, Naoko Mori, Rodney Earl Clarke and Mark Heenehan.
