The Music Man is a Tony Award-winning 1957 Broadway musical written by Meredith Willson. Long considered one of the classics of the genre, the theatrical version has been a staple of Summer Stock and Community theatre productions for more than 50 years.
The story follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys' band that he vows to organize - this, despite the fact that he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain's fall.
The score is filled with wonderful tunes including "76 Trombones", "Being In Love", "Till There Was You", "Wells Fargo Wagon", and the showstopper "You Got Trouble".
In 1962, it was adapted into an Oscar award winning musical film. The film starred Robert Preston, who played in the original Broadway show, as well as Shirley Jones as Marian and a very young Ron Howard as Marian's little brother Winthrop. The Music Man was adapted again as a 2003 Wonderful World of Disney remake starring Matthew Broderick and Kristin Chenoweth.
