TBT: Jerome Robbins' Broadway

On the Town really has e waxing nostalgic for one of my all-time favorite shows, Jerome Robbins' Broadway. Called "the Musical of Musicals," it featured numbers from some of the greatest musicals ever, including West Side Story, The King and I, Fiddler on the Roof, Gypsy and, as you might have guessed, On the Town.

25 years ago, it won 6 Tonys, including Best Musical and ran for 633 performances.  It starred Tony-winners Jason Alexander, Debbie Shapiro-Gravitte and Scott Wise.  The company included such now-familiar names as Charlotte d'Amboise and Faith Prince, and later replacements included Karen Mason, Terrence Mann and Tony Roberts.
