The Sting

Closed April 29, 2018

A world premiere musical from a Tony-winning creative team

Why See The Sting?


Con Or Be Conned

1973's Oscar-winning caper starring Robert Redford and Paul Newman has been turned into a brand new musical, which receives its world premiere premiere at the Paper Mill House. A twisty tale that features deception upon deception, The Sting follows two lovable conmen in 1930's Chicago in their quest to take down the city's biggest racketeer. Harry Connick, Jr. will star as Henry Gondorff!

The Tony Award-winning creative team behind this adaptation include Urinetown's songwriting duo Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis, and Drowsy Chaperone bookwriter Bob Martin, while John Rando (On The Town) directs. With its sights set on a future Broadway run, The Sting promises to be a frothy musical delight, from some of the most talented folks in the musical theatre business.
