However, the lovely Marian the Librarian woos Harold and compels him to reconsider his evil ways, causing Harold's plans to quickly veer off course. "The Music Man" is a timeless musical that has been referenced and sung in pop culture from "The Wedding Singer" and "Family Guy" to "The Simpsons" and Conan O'Brien. The original show debuted on Broadway in 1957, winning a Tony Award for Best Musical and seeing two more revivals in 1980 and in 2000. In 1962, the show also received a wildly popular movie spinoff that was remade in 2003. The LCU version will feature a two-story set, a top-notch cast and crew, and live orchestra and band."Music Man is a fun show that has not been produced at LCU since the 1970's. It is a charming story with memorable music," Doyle said. Directed by Dr. Don Williams and Dr. Laurie Doyle.
