This musical centers on three families of different backgrounds and societal class at the turn of the 20th century in New York City. As the century dawns, the families and their involvement merge as we see how they relate and depend on each other in the hustle and bustle of the big city. The intersecting storylines and the lives of the characters are the basis for this much loved American musical that includes some of Broadways most enduring and endearing songs.
