On The Town is a love affair with New York City, a musical comedy that celebrates the city’s high culture to its low-brow street smarts. It follows three sailors and the women they come across, its laugh-out-loud comedy contrasting with the heartbreaking possibility that this might be the last time they will ever see the city. It’s performed by the University of Chichester Touring Company, with music by Leonard Bernstein, directed by Karen Howard, choreographed by Damien Delaney and a West End band under Dustin Conrad.
