On The Town, the energetic wartime comedic musical about three sailors on a 24-hour leave in New York City, features thrilling music by Leonard Bernstein with playful lyrics and book by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. Goofy and flirtatious Ozzie is looking for a date, and studious innocent Chip, guidebook in hand, has several days’ worth of tourist attractions to check off his list. But when idealistic Gabey falls for the photograph of lovely Miss Turnstiles, a subway beauty queen, they all join in an ambitious scavenger hunt around the city to locate this dream girl -- and, on the way, find all of the romance, adventure, and New York atmosphere for which they could wish. The show’s celebrated score written by the composer of West Side Story includes a number of musical theatre standards, like  “Come Up to My Place,” “I Can Cook, Too,” “Some Other Time,” and “New York, New York.”
