Judging by the prompt sellout of its current production of the classic, “The Music Man”, the Alhambra Theatre & Dining announced today it is extending the run for an additional week. The show will now close on June 13, 2021.
About the Show: In 1957, the show became a hit on Broadway,
winning five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and running for 1,375
performances. The cast album won the first-ever Grammy Award for Best Musical
Theater Album and spent 245 weeks on the Billboard charts. The show's success
led to several revivals, including a long-running 2000 Broadway revival, a
popular 1962 film adaptation and a 2003 television adaptation.
The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a marching band that he vows to organize – this, despite the fact that he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain's fall.
About the Meal: Executive Chef DeJuan Roy creates a new menu for every Alhambra show, usually borrowing influences from the script to shape his selections and recipes. Thanks to Chef Roy's culinary magic, the Alhambra is now known as much for its exceptional dining as for its theatrical productions. The menu for "The Music Man" features:
First Course (Choice of One) River City Salad - Chopped iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, cheddar cheese, croutons, Brown Derby Old Fashioned French Dressing *GF* without croutons; OR, Billiards Beef & Barley Soup.
Second Course (Choice of One) Chicken Divan - chicken thighs with creamy broccoli & cheddar cheese sauce, sweet peas, mushrooms, white rice; OR, Slow Roasted Pork Brisket with honey barbecue glaze, mac n' cheese, collard greens *GF* without mac n' cheese; OR, Parmesan Crusted Salmon with pesto cream sauce, rice pilaf, roasted asparagus; OR, Cauliflower Wellington - Cauliflower with red pepper sauce, roasted Parmesan tomatoes, mushroom Duxelles wrapped in puff pastry.
