Brent Lang Executive Editor of Film and MediaBroadway will be without a marching band for more than a year. “The Music Man,” the upcoming revival of Meredith Willson’s classic look at a huckster who cons a town into buying instruments for its kids, will be delayed until 2022, Variety has confirmed.

The news follows the announcement that Broadway, which has been dark since last March due to COVID-19, will remain closed until May 30, 2021.

The news is a blow to the theater community, which is desperately in need of a big, brassy hit, which “The Music Man” with Hugh Jackman playing the role of Professor Henry Hill, would surely have served up.
