Meredith Willson’s “The Music Man” is the story of Harold Hill, a fast-talking salesman who cons the honest citizens of River City, Iowa into buying musical instruments by promising to create a boy’s band. Not knowing a clarinet from a saxophone, Harold attempts to escape with cash in hand, only to be caught by the arms of the beautiful Marian the librarian and transformed into a respectable citizen… Americana at its best!
