On the Town Film & Music: Celebrating Bernstein

Join us as New West Symphony's Rebecca Madigan introduces a very special screening of the 1949 musical, On the Town.

Fun-loving sailors Gabey (Gene Kelly), Chip (Frank Sinatra) and Ozzie (Jules Munshin) have 24 hours of shore leave in New York City, and they want to make every second count. While Chip hooks up with loudmouth cab driver Brunhilde (Betty Garrett) and Ozzie swoons for prim anthropologist Claire (Ann Miller), Gabey falls in love with an actress he sees in an advertisement, Ivy Smith (Vera-Ellen). Leonard Bernstein, with lyricists Betty Comden and Adolph Green, provides the music.

The New West Symphony 501(c)(3) will be performing Leonard Bernstein’s music, conducted by John Mauceri, November 18 and19 at the Thousand Oaks and Oxnard Performing Arts Centers. For more information visit NewWestSymphony.org.
