Meet Me In St. Louis
Meet Me in St. Louis is a delightful classic. Nostalgic, poignant, and romantic, this musical tells the story of the well-to-do Smith family in suburban, midwestern St. Louis. They have four beautiful daughters and a son and live in a stylish Edwardian home at 5135 Kensington Avenue. The city is on the verge of hosting and celebrating the arrival of the spectacular 1904 World's Fair. However, the father, Alonso, is beckoned to New York due to a promotion and he might have to uproot the Smith family, scuttling his daughter Esther's romance with boy-next-door John Truett and causing similar emotional trauma for the rest of the household. This possible move to New York threatens to indelibly change the lives of the family members forever. The decision to remain in St. Louis affirms however, that nothing will be altered for this American family after all.
