The musical On the Town is a frantic search for love set in 40s era New York City, where the main characters only have 24 hours on the shore before being returned to war. Gabey, a hopeless romantic, is determined to find that month’s Miss Turnstiles, a woman he’s only seen on a subway poster, and his shipmates Ozzie and Chip aim to help him. Along the way, they become enamored with a quirky cabbie and an already engaged anthropologist. Leonard Bernstein constructed the score for this production, including vibrant classics like “New York, New York” (which has even been parodied in The Simpsons), among many other Broadway hits. This number is chock full of dance sequences, running the gamut from ballet to jazz, and everything in between. Some of DC’s more well-known actors take on these iconic roles once played by the likes of Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelley, including Evan CaseyRhett GuterSam LudwigDonna MigliaccioTracy Lynn OliveraBobby Smith and Rachel Zampelli. This somewhat scandalous musical provides a ton of twists and turns, but it’s sure to be a thrilling wild ride.
