Connie Fisher (The Sound of Music and winner of the BBC’s How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria) and double Olivier Award nominee Michael Xavier (Love Story, Phantom of the Opera) star in the multi award-winning musical comedy, Wonderful Town.
Featuring a superb score by legendary American composer Leonard Bernstein (West Side Story), the show has received countless awards since its premiere in 1953 including the prestigious Tony Award for Best Musical.
Connie plays aspiring writer Ruth Sherwood who arrives in New York City fresh from Ohio with her beautiful younger sister Eileen. Bursting with dreams of romance, riches and perhaps a free lunch at Walgreen’s deli, the indomitable pair meet an array of colourful characters in their search for success, causing chaos and delight at every turn.
Wonderful Town recreates the bright lights of 1930s New York City with spectacular sets, dazzling choreography and the rich sound of Bernstein’s magnificent music.
