On The Town

Presented by Resonance Works

Fri-Sun, October 19-21

Resonance Works opens its sixth season celebrating the centennial of Leonard Bernstein with the brilliant score to his first Broadway success – On the Town!  Set during WWII, On the Town follows the amorous adventures of three sailors on 24-hour shore leave in New York City.  The revolutionary score boldly draws from diverse musical inspirations including jazz, spirituals, operetta, symphonic classicism, beautiful ballads, and catchy tunes like the iconic songs “New York, New York,” “Lonely Town,” and “Some Other Time,” plus a plethora of purely orchestral music.  

This concert version includes the entire original score, with narration by original collaborators Betty Comden and Adolf Green. Stage director Valerie Rachelle, Artistic Director of the Oregon Cabaret Theater, makes her Pittsburgh debut, working with a stellar cast of Resonance Works favorites, including Christopher Scott, Patrick McNally, Benjamin Robinson, Gillian Hassert, Rebecca Shorstein, Jonathan Stuckey, and Anna Singer.  Members of The Brass Roots join forces with the Resonance Chamber Orchestra conducted by Artistic Director Maria Sensi Sellner.
