On the Town was created by Leonard Bernstein, Betty Comden, Adolph Green and Jerome Robbins.
The score features the standards “New York, New York,” “I Can Cook Too,” “Lonely Town” and “Some Other Time” and will be played with their original orchestrations, performed by what will be the largest orchestra on Broadway, with 28 musicians led by musical director James Moore.
The upcoming production will also feature scenic design by Tony nominee Beowulf Boritt, lighting design by Drama Desk nominee Jason Lyons, costume design by Tony Award winner Jess Goldstein and sound design by Tony nominee Kai Harada.
On the Town is produced by Howard and Janet Kagan.
