If I were you I would hurry on down to the Bellport Gateway Playhouse and get two front row seats to the best production east of Broadway, right here on Long Island, NY.

I’m talking about the production of ON THE TOWN, brilliantly performed by a truly great crew of talent. I must say the time just flew away from us.

Having seen the movie starring: Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Betty Garrett, Ann Miller, a fun-filled musical about three sailors on shore leave. The Bellport production carries the same spirit, fun, and great acting, singing and dancing to a wonderful height that off-Broadway has never achieved before! You have to be impressed by the young performers and some of the old ones too.

Then there is the scenery, well thought out and some of it compelling. There is the ending segments or acts that center on Coney Island, and one song is sung solo, the actress standing on stage with a backdrop that was so well thought out it was worth the price of admission. With a series of lights, the set decorator strung out the hint of an outline of the Steeple Chase and the Ferris Wheel, that was beautiful to look at, with a fine elegance and respect for design and yet did not overpower the stage or the performer. Kudos to a great show.

Then to celebrate the show, go to a wonderful restaurant just down the road toward the west to a place called Avino’s, for the best-damned meal with great ambiance and wonderful service you will ever have.
