"As American as apple pie and a Fourth of July oration […] THE MUSICAN MAN is a marvelous show, rooted in wholesome and comic tradition. […] Willson's music is innocent; the beat is rousing and the tunes are full of gusto. He has given it the uniformity of a well-designed crazy-quilt in which every patch blends with its neighbor." - The New York Times

"One of the few great musical comedies of the last 26 years. […] This musical is put together so expertly and acted and sung and danced by so many enchanting people that it should be either twice as long or performed twice at each performance.." - Daily News

"A whopping hit. This salute by Meredith Willson to his native Iowa will make even OKLAHOMA! look to its laurels." - The Journal-American

"An entertaining, heartwarming evening of theater that will seduce audiences of all ages and sensibilities just as handily as Harold Hill seduces the denizens of River City!" - USA Today 

THE MUSIC MAN opened on Broadway, after years of development, on December 19, 1957 at the Majestic Theatre. Starring Robert Preston and Barbara Cook, the production ran for almost three years before transferring to the Broadway Theatre; it closed on April 15, 1961 with 1,375 performances under its belt. Only a month before, the musical premiered in the UK at the Bristol Hippodrome, then the Adelphi Theatre on London's West End on March 16, 1961.
