Wonderful Town

Wonderful Town, The Ye Olde Rose and Crown Theatre Pub

To conclude their 2016 season, All Star Productions present a new chamber production of Leonard Bernstein's 1953 musical. Based on the play My Sister Eileen by Joseph Fields and Jerome Chodorov, the Tony award-winning Wonderful Town is a bright and cheery love letter to the colourful experience of living life in New York in the 1930's.

This show has now closed. See our list of theatre tickets for shows currently on sale.

The show tells the story of two sisters, Ruth and Eileen, who move from a rural town in Ohio to experience the bright lights, the big city, and the crazy characters of Greenwich Village, New York City. Ruth is an aspiring writer and Eileen is a dancer who wants to pursue a life on stage. One sister can’t find a man no matter what she does, the other can’t keep them away. Together, these two sisters take on the world, pursuing their dreams and finding love along the way.

Betty Comden & Adolph Green, book by Joseph Fields & Jerome Chodorov. Based upon the Play My Sister Eileen by Joseph Fields & Jerome Chodorov and the Short Stories by Ruth McKenney.
