Written by Meredith Wilson, "The Music Man" tells the story of Harold Hill, a fraudster who fools a small town into buying uniforms and musical instruments for a marching band that he has no intention of really organizing. When spinster librarian Marion becomes suspicious of him, Harold proceeds to seduce her, accidentally developing feelings for her in the process. "The Music Man" came to Broadway in 1957 and ran for 1,375 performances, garnering five Tony Awards and inspiring a beloved 1962 film adaptation starring Robert Preston and Shirley Jones. Professional and amateur theater companies still perform the show today.
