On the Town at Lyric Theatre (formerly Foxwoods Theatre)
On the Town
Lyric Theatre (formerly Foxwoods Theatre)

Three sailors are hoping to get just a little bit lucky on their one day of leave in the Big Apple. From the Brooklyn Navy Yard and Coney Island to Times Square and Carnegie Hall, On the Town zigzags through New York City as the sailors and the three high-spirited young women they meet chase love, dreams and each other. With Clyde Alves, 
Jay Armstrong Johnson,
 Tony Yazbeck,
 Jackie Hoffman,
 Megan Fairchild, 
Alysha Umphress
 and Elizabeth Stanley.   

Three sailors, on a 24-hour shore leave at the end of World War II, take New York by storm as they search for "Miss Turnstiles," a poster girl on a subway display card. They discover instead the sights of New York City and three nice young women. Includes "New York, New York (It's a Wonderful Town)" "Come Up to My Place" and "Lonely Town." Based on a concept by Jerome Robbins.
