The Music Man On Broadway

September 6, 2020. That is the date that Broadway and Off-Broadway shows are shut down through, due to the coronavirus. September 9, 2020. On that day, the new Broadway revival of The Music Man starring Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster, is scheduled to begin previews at the Wintergarden Theatre. September 10, 2020. Theatre in New York City will unfortunately, baring a miracle, still be shut down. Trust me. I don't like it anymore than you do. But we have to be realistic.

Theatre as we know it, will more than likely not be back until 2021. Now I'm no expert. Nor have I ever claimed to be either. What I am is a theatre lover, and have been for most of my life. Plus The Music Man is one of my favorite shows of all time. Which is why I was so excited when it was announced last year that the show was coming back to Broadway. Now believe it or not, but I have never seen Hugh Jackman on Broadway. I have however seen Sutton Foster many times, and she has never disappointed.

If there was ever a more  perfect pair to play Professor Harold Hill and Marion Paroo, then I don't who. I like most, can't wait to see the show. Actually, there are many shows that I can't wait to see. But that's what we are going to be doing for the time being. Waiting. Waiting for businesses to reopen. Waiting for things like bars and restaurants to open back up at full capacity. And waiting for the day that we can sit in a theatre once again. I know I'm willing to wait. How about you? Stay safe everyone, and keep looking out for one another. Until next time theatre fans.
