Robin and the 7 Hoods

July 14 - Aug. 22
Old Globe Theatre, San Diego, Calif.

Broadway could have yet another retro-'60s hit on the way, with this new musical based on the 1964 film — an update of the Robin Hood legend that marked the Rat Pack's last screen get-together. The Jimmy Van Heusen-Sammy Cahn songs, including "My Kind of Town (Chicago Is)," offer some hope that it will be at least a little more fun than the Russell Crowe movie.
