University of Chichester’s celebrated Musical Theatre Touring company have secured prestigious rights to bring Leonard Bernstein’s musical masterpiece, ON THE TOWN to selected regional theatres as part of the Leonard Bernstein Centenary.

ON THE TOWN has been a classic since its original Broadway run in 1944 and was a revolutionary musical, being the first ever written by a symphonic composer. At its heart, the musical is a love-affair with New York City, from the city’s high-culture to its low-brow ‘street smarts’, to the innocent adventurousness of three sailors and the women they come across. Written during World War II, the effervescence of the iconic songs and laugh out loud comedy of the satirical script also play out against the brooding, heart-breaking possibility that this might be the sailors’ first and last time that they will ever see the city, a poignancy that radiates from the cast of strong women that they meet along the way. It is, in all sense, and for all the senses, a total embrace!

The production features a West End professional live band in the pit and some of the freshest, glorious voices on stage from the next generation of musical theatre performers, doing justice to hits like ‘New York, New York’ and the achingly beautiful ‘Some Other Time’. The exuberant, accompanying dance numbers and ballet sequence are legendary.

Under the Direction and Choreography of Karen Howard and Damien Delaney, who have created all the previous touring productions and Musical Direction by Dustin Conrad. Their combined credits include Opera North, Theatre Royal Haymarket and Southwark Playhouse.

Presented in association with ‘Bernstein in Chichester’.
