The original Broadway production of The Music Man starring Robert Preston and Barbara Cook opened December 19, 1957 at the Majestic Theatre. Meredith Willson wrote the book, lyrics, and score from a story he and Franklin Lacey devised. The production transferred to the Broadway Theatre in 1960 and played a total of 1,375 performances before closing in April in 1961.

The Music Man had its first revival in 1980 starring Dick Van Dyke and Meg Bussert, and received its second Broadway revival in 2000 starring Craig Bierko and Rebecca Luker.
