About The Show: Everyone who comes to New York City has different expectations and plans for their stay. ON THE TOWN is the tale of three sailors on a 24-hour leave from their ship docked in this fabulous city. Memorable musical numbers include Come Up to My Place, Lucky to Be Me, Some Other Time and New York, New York. It’s an uplifting, fun show with energy and verve.
