Theater Blogging

City Circle's "The Music Man" opens tonight:
Stokes promises a fresh look at the story of con salesman Harold Hill in the mythical town of River City, Iowa.

"Expect a high energy, nonstop blockbuster that will blow the cobwebs off of our memories of this great show," he said.

Hill goes from town to town taking pre-paid orders for musical instruments that he promises to teach youth how to play.

He doesn't think of anyone but himself, until he wanders into River City and falls for the single librarian.

With a cast of more than 40, it is a musical not to miss, said Jeff Shields, office manager of City Circle.

"This will definitely be a fun show that everyone will enjoy seeing," he said.
