John Rando directs the staging of the Leonard Bernstein, Betty Comden and Adolph Green musical, which is scheduled to run Nov. 19-23. "Set in wartime 1944," On the Town, according to press notes, "chronicles the adventures of three sailors on a 24-hour shore 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."

Christian Borle, Justin Bohon and Tony Yazbeck lead the cast as the three sailors opposite Jessica Lee Goldyn, Leslie Kritzer, Jennifer Laura Thompson, Julyana Soelistyo, Andrea Martin and Michael Cumpsty.
