On the Town
circa 1944

Inspired by Jerome Robbins' earlier ballet Fancy Free, On The Town brilliantly dramatized the adventures of three sailors in New York on a 24-hour pass. Robbins' driving creative vision as both director and choreographer on this show and his West Side Story (1957) planted the seeds for the so called "concept musical," such as "Cabaret" (1966) and "Chicago" (1975).
