The executive producer of the Music Man who will return on Broadway is Kate Horton. The show will begin on December 20th at the Winter Garden Theatre.

Horton’s Issues

Horton announced her intention to withdraw from the drama business as an allegation of workplace abuse and intimidation. UK-based Horton and director Dominic Cooke lead the independent stage and screen production company Fictionhouse. The two’s cooperation also included leadership positions in the Royal Court Theatre. The subsequent broadcasts of dramas such as Jerusalem, Clybourne  Park, and Constellation in the West End and Broadway. The remaining production team is Barry Diller and David Geffen. With the return of Broadway’s “Kill a Mockingbird”, a similar shift has taken place in this move. In the absence of Rudin, Olin Wolfe joined the team.

Plot

“The Music Man” is a musical adapted from the story of Willson and Franklin Lacey by Meredith Willson.The plot involves the liar Harold Hill, who pretends to be the organizer and leader of a boy band, sells band instruments and uniforms to naive Midwestern townspeople, and promises to train new band members. However, Harold is not a musician, and he plans to skip the town without taking any music lessons.

Marianne, the librarian and piano teacher, saw him through, but when Harold helped her brother overcome his slurs and social embarrassment, Marianne fell in love with him. In 1957, the show was popular on Broadway, winning five Tony Awards including Best Musical, and participated in 1,375 performances. The actor’s album won the first Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album and stayed on the Billboard charts for 245 weeks. The success of the show led to a revival, including the long-running Broadway revival in 2000, a popular film adaptation in 1962, and a television adaptation in 2003.
