what the critics are saying
 


“It takes your breath away. A jubilant revival.”
– The New York Times


“A big, juicy kiss. So pucker up, New York! Three footloose sailors aren’t the only ones who get lucky in ON THE TOWN. The audience does, too. The 28-piece orchestra brings out all the splendor in Leonard Bernstein’s rapturous, red-blooded score.”
– New York Daily News


“Anyone who isnít thrilled by this production needs a heart transplant. When did you last see a musical that made you want to shout with joy? Everything a great show should be.
– The Wall Street Journal


“An explosion of pure joy!”
– The Hollywood Reporter


“Hits the jackpot! This would leave Comden and Green tickled pink and leaping for joy!”
– The Huffington Post

 


On the Town
New Broadway Cast Recording

"A jubilant revival that takes your breath away" is how The New York Times hailed the new production of ON THE TOWN, the beloved musical by American icon Leonard Bernstein and Betty Comden & Adolph Green, which returned to Broadway on October 16th, 2014. The Wall Street Journal declared, "Anyone who isn’t thrilled by this production needs a heart transplant - [it’s] everything a great show should be," while The Hollywood Reporter called it "an explosion of pure joy." Bernstein and Comden & Green’s "rapturous, red-blooded score" (New York Daily News) - featuring some of the most heartfelt and memorable songs in the musical canon (including "New York, New York," "Lonely Town," "Lucky to Be Me" and "Some Other Time"), and brought to life by a 28-piece orchestra (the biggest on Broadway) - remains, 70 years after its premiere, among the finest scores ever written for the stage. The 30-member cast, led by Tony Yazbeck, Jay Armstrong Johnson, Clyde Alves, Megan Fairchild, Elizabeth Stanley and Alysha Umphress, perform this big, brassy musical comedy under the direction of Tony Award-winner John Rando, with choreography by Emmy-winner Joshua Bergasse (Smash). ON THE TOWN has become a national musical treasure, and now PS Classics is proud to preserve the complete score in a deluxe two-disc set.
