Theater Trivia Contest

A scene from this (fictional) Broadway musical appears in the movie version of what (real) Broadway musical?

Post your answer — the title of the Broadway musical — by leaving a comment. The first correct response wins a $25 gift certificate to Piedmont restaurant in Durham. (Comments are moderated and will not appear until we announce the winner.)

Congratulations to Thaddaeus Edwards who almost instantly identified On the Town — the 1944 musical made into the 1949 movie, and whose plot is about — yes — a day in New York. Thad wins the $25 gift certificate to Piedmont.

Thanks to everyone for playing!

    Would it be On the Town?? Gene Kelly is one of my favorites, but it’s been awhile since I’ve seen this film…

    OK, this works funny.

    “On The Town”

    On the Town?

  5. I was going to say it was from a famous Busby Berkeley musical named after a street…. but I think it actually might be from “Meet Me in St. Louis”.

    Although that started as a movie BEFORE it was a Broawday musical, if I’m not mistaken…fun contest in any case!!!
