The Open Air Theatre’s annual season at Regent’s Park welcomes this incredible musical that has won over the hearts of audiences worldwide since it was first seen in the 1940s.
On The Town will be presented at the seasonal summer venue in what has been described as the biggest musical staged there, making this an unmissable event and one that will be talked about throughout the year. It even features direction and choreography from the renowned Drew McOnie, who has made headlines in recent years for In The Heights’ choreography in London, and this will only add to the anticipation.
From Broadway musical to hit film and West End musical, On The Town has enjoyed a stand-out journey over the decades since its New York premiere in 1944.
The story centres on three US sailors – Chip, Ozzie and Gabey - who are on shore leave in New York. Set during the Second World War, we witness as they attempt see the sights of the big city and find Ivy, a woman who has captured the heart of Gabey. Along the way they all meet and form relationships with three different women.
But whilst that story alone would normally be enough to propel this forward in the imaginations of audiences, the show also boasts some iconic musical numbers including the classic New York New York. Leonard Bernstein provides the music, whilst Betty Comden and Adolph Green added lyrics and the book, and their combined efforts have made musical theatre history.
And on this occasion it will be presented through the eyes of Drew McOnie, whose work as a director and choreographer have earned him great praise over the years, with credits like Jekyll & Hyde at the Old Vic Theatre and In The Heights at the Southwark Playhouse and King’s Cross Theatre (choreography only for the latter show).
One The Town runs at the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre from Friday 19th May 2017.
