New Orleanians would warm to a sweet-talking stranger telling them they need instruments for a boys' band. But in River City, that spells trouble. Or so says Harold Hill in the Broadway classic The Music Man. But he's as smitten with Marian the librarian as they are duped by his pitch. The show closes Summer Lyric Theatre's season. Tickets $26-$35.
