The 1957 Broadway musical tells the tale of Harold Hill, an instrument salesman who makes false promises to help an Iowa town launch a marching band, but winds up staying longer than planned when he begins to fall for Marian, a librarian who’s suspicious of his intentions.

A 1962 big-screen version of The Music Man starred Robert Preston and Shirley Jones as the central couple. Matthew Broderick and Kristin Chenoweth headlined a 2003 TV remake on ABC.
