This delightful staple of the musical theatre canon is about the adventures and misadventures of two sisters who move from small-town Ohio to the bohemia of 1935 Greenwich Village. Eileen is gorgeous, sweet and an aspiring actress with men falling at her feet. Ruth, while a gifted writer, is average, brazen and has a talent for repelling gentlemen callers. With a glorious score of swinging tunes by Leonard Bernstein, Betty Comden and Adolph Green, Wonderful Town is the quintessential New York musical comedy about tackling your dreams and finding love in the most unexpected places. Winner of five Tony Awards in 1953 including Best Musical.
