    On The Town, set in wartime 1944 and inspired by Jerome Robbins’ ballet, “Fancy Free,” is the story of three sailors’ adventurous 24-hour leave in New York City. Their fabulous day-long journey is spurred by a search for sailor Gabey’s dream girl, “Miss Turnstiles.” Along the way, each sailor falls in love with a woman, and with New York City itself.  Songs include “New York, New York,” “Some Other Time,” and “I Can Cook Too.”

    This production is part of Bernstein: The Best of All Possible Worlds, a partnership with Carnegie Hall and the New York Philharmonic. For more information, visit bernsteinfestival.org.
