On the Town is a musical based on Jerome Robbins' idea for his 1944 ballet Fancy Free, which he had set to Bernstein's music (also included on this disc). The musical was made into a film by MGM in 1949 starring Gene Kelly.
The story is set in wartime New York City in 1944 when three American sailors enjoy a 24-hour shore leave. Each of the three sailors becomes enamoured with a particular woman — and with the city.
The musical introduced several popular and classic songs, among them "New York, New York", "Lonely Town", "I Can Cook, Too", and "Some Other Time".
