The Music Man 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 the curtain's fall.

As critic Robert Coleman wrote in 1957, "If you want to be happy, spend an evening with The Music Man.  It'll make your feet snap into a marching step to 'Seventy-Six Trombones', make you reach for your hankie to mop moist eyes in 'Goodnight My Someone', and want to dance in the aisles to 'Shapoopi'!  What a show!  What a hit!  What a solid hit!"

"Meredith Wilson's view of the world was marked by a belief and the inherent goodness of people and the possibility of miracles."
