Drew McOnie returns to the Open Air Theatre

Why See On The Town?

The hit dansical returns to London after 10 years!

Regent's Park Open Air Theatre kicks off their 2017 season with one of the most uplifting, fancy-free dansicals around! Directed by esteemed choreographer Drew McOnie who has worked on shows including last year's Jesus Christ Superstar (also at Open Air Theatre), Strictly Ballroom, Chicago and and In the Heights, this adaptation of the beloved Jerome Robbins movie that starred Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly is the biggest show yet to appear at the venue, making it a very cool way to spend YOUR night on the town! No word yet on whether Jerry Mouse will make a cameo...

A slice of New York, New York in London, On The Town follows three sailors on shore-leave in the Big Apple in 1944, who meet and connect with three very different women. With only 24 hours to enjoy themselves, they make a pact to make as much of their time as possible, which inevitably ends up in chaos! With music and lyrics by the legendary Leonard Bernstein, the soundtrack includes classics including "New York, New York", "Lonely Town", "I Can Cook, Too" and marks a welcome return to London since its 2007 revival at the ENO.
