By turns funny, warm, romantic and touching, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best. Meredith Wilson's six-time, TONY Award winning musical comedy follows fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys' band he vows to organize - this despite the fact he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls in love with Marian the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain's fall.
