Meet Me in St. Louis is based on the 1944 MGM movie of the same name, starring Judy Garland as Esther. The musical opened on Broadway at the George Gershwin Theatre in 1989 and closed in June 1990, after 252 performances.
The current version of the show is considerably different than the original 1989 Broadway production. The songs: “Be Anything But A Girl”, “Ghosties and Ghoulies and Things That Go Bump in the Night”, “Halloween Ballet”, “Diamonds in the Starlight” and “Paging Mr. Sousa” have been cut from the show.
The 1999 revival changed the order of the songs and added the song “Whenever I’m With You”.
