On the Town Opens
The 70th anniversary revival of On the Town, the classic, if dated, musical by Leonard Bernstein and the legendary coupling of Betty Comden and Adolph Green, opened last night at the Lyric Theatre. The reviews are in and the show is an unqualified hit. Every review I read was a total rave. Basically, get your tickets now.
Standouts in the reviews were John Rando's direction, Joshua Bergasse's choreography, and the performances of Tony Yazbeck, Jackie Hoffman, Megan Fairchild, Philip Boynkin, Alysha Umphress, and Elizabeth Stanley.
