Three young sailors on shore-leave hit 1944 New York City in a mad sprint to find love before being shipped off to war. Gabey sets off in search of a beauty he's only seen on a subway poster -- that month's Miss Turnstiles -- while his comrades stumble into romances with a cabbie who sets her own destinations and an anthropologist in search of the perfect "primitive man." The manic coupling is set to an exuberant Leonard Bernstein score that begins with the classic "New York, New York" and from there reaches heights of classical and popular greatness. Comden & Green's first Broadway hit grew out of a ballet that Jerome Robbins worked on with Bernstein, so this also promises to be one of the danciest shows of our season! On The Town stars some of DC's favorite award-winning actors, including Evan Casey, Rhett Guter, Sam Ludwig, Donna Migliaccio, Tracy Lynn Olivera, Bobby Smith and Rachel Zampelli.
