About the Event

“Why, oh why, oh why-oh—Why did I ever leave Ohio?” To visit this Wonderful Town. The city lights. The humming traffic. The bustling crowds. There’s nothing like the first time you land in New York City. With a dazzling score by Leonard Bernstein and witty lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, Wonderful Town is the story of Eileen and Ruth Sherwood, two sisters who are fresh off the bus from Ohio and bursting with dreams of making it big, falling in love, and living happily ever after in New York City—the city we all love. Wonderful Town celebrates and thrives on the pulse of jazz-age New York. The classic and familiar score includes “Ohio,” “A Little Bit in Love,” and “Christopher Street.”
