MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS
The blockbuster Broadway musicalization of the glorious Judy Garland film!
Music and Lyrics by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane
Book by Hugh Wheeler
“Meet Me in St. Louis” is based on the heartwarming movie directed by Vincente Minelli and starred Judy Garland. Join the Smith family at the 1904 World’s Fair, and see how their love and respect for each other is tempered with the genuine humor that can only be generated by such a special family. Memorable musical numbers include The Boy Next Door, A Raving Beauty, The Trolley Song, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Whenever I’m with You and A Day in New York – and of course the title song. Suddenly there’s a blackout. Imagine yourself standing with the family as the lights from the World’s Fair fill the stage – and the entire Mt. Gretna Playhouse – what a lovely panorama!
“Meet Me In St. Louis is a family show if ever there was one. Sweeter than molasses, it will surely bring a smile to even the most jaded theatergoer’s face. …So light and fluffy that you almost expect it to float away.” NYTheatre.com
