River City, Iowa residents will have trouble beginning Saturday night as conman Harold Hill sweeps into town as the Bergen County Players present "The Music Man" opening at 8pm. Meredith Willson’s musical comedy, which will run through Oct. 6, is one of the most beloved shows in American theater. Its story of how love changes the lives of a fast-talking salesman, a small town librarian, and the good folks of River City, Iowa, is a comedy that has entertained audiences since 1957.
