Here's how Wonderful Town is billed: "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."
Kevin Lawson will musical direct, with choreography by Elyse Daye Hart and Trey Mitchell. Costumes are designed by Jevyn Nelms, the set is designed by William Davis, lighting is designed by Scott Cally, the sound is designed by Josh Millican and the properties master is Sara Slagle.
