About The Music Man

Tony winners Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster return to Broadway, onstage together for the first time, in the acclaimed revival of one of the finest musicals ever written. Jackman stars as Professor Harold Hill opposite Foster’s Marian Paroo, among the most beloved characters in the musical theatre canon, in the Broadway revival of Meredith Willson’s The Music Man. Get The Music Man tickets on TodayTix.

See not only Broadway’s most in-demand leading man, but also its most in-demand leading lady, in this Tony-nominated revival that New York Theatre Guide hails for its “expert execution” and The Hollywood Reporter calls “tremendous.” Jackman and Foster are a match made in musical theatre heaven, which has made The Music Man one of the hottest tickets this side of River City. And that’s not to mention its six Tony Award nominations including Best Revival of a Musical, Best Choreography, and performance nods for Jackman, Foster, and Jayne Houdyshell as the River City mayor’s wife, Eulalie.

Don’t miss these stars and a talented ensemble perform all The Music Man’s classic songs, like “76 Trombones” and “Ya Got Trouble,” with high-stepping dancing that’ll make you want to get up and join the big parade. And all this is just the cherry on top of one of Broadway’s classic love stories, about a con man and a small-town librarian who both risk it all for love.

Now that the Wells Fargo wagon brought The Music Man to New York again for a limited time, make sure you plan to see this romantic, joyful musical theatre classic. Get The Music Man Broadway tickets on TodayTix now.

Tell Me More

The Music Man musical reunites the creative team behind the smash hit Broadway revival of Hello, Dolly!, including director Jerry Zaks and Tony-nominated choreographer Warren Carlyle. Their sumptuous revival brings a mix of huge production numbers, gorgeous dancing, and old-fashioned bombast to the Winter Garden Theatre.

The Music Man premiered on Broadway in 1957. A huge hit, the show won the Tony Award for Best Musical (beating out West Side Story), ran for 1,375 performances, and made stars out of Robert Preston (as Harold) and Barbara Cook (as Marian).

The Music Man remains Meredith Willson’s most famous work, though he’s written two other Broadway musicals: The Unsinkable Molly Brown and Here’s Love. A revamped Off-Broadway revival of Molly Brown went up in early 2020; the Music Man Broadway revival was set to open later that year, but was postponed amid the pandemic.

What to Watch For

  • Willson loosely based River City and The Music Man’s characters on his hometown of Mason City, Iowa. Now, a bridge there called The Music Man Footbridge is dedicated to him. There’s also Music Man Square, which encompasses Willson’s childhood home and a “River City” town square designed to look like it’s from 1912, when the musical is set. Memorabilia from the Music Man movie is on display there.
  • Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster are on stage together for the first time in The Music Man. Both last appeared on Broadway separately in 2014, when Jackman led the cast of the new play The River and Foster led a revival of the musical Violet.
  • Jackman has wanted to star in The Music Man since childhood. He auditioned for Harold Hill in high school but didn’t get it, and he has since performed the show’s opening song, “Rock Island,” on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and at the Tonys.
  • The original Music Man cast album won the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album and spent 245 weeks on the Billboard charts.
  • Celebrities have always flocked to The Music Man. The show’s first revival, at New York City Center in 1980, starred Dick Van Dyke as Harold Hill and a young Christian Slater as Marian’s little brother, Winthrop.
  • The Music Man was last revived on Broadway in 2000 at the Neil Simon Theatre. The hit production starred Craig Bierko and Rebecca Luker, with direction and choreography by Susan Stroman.
  • Willson is also a two-time Oscar nominee for his film scores (for The Great Dictator and The Little Foxes) and is known for writing the classic holiday tune "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas."
