Bernstein returned to the musical theater in the early 1950s for the first time since On the Townwith two works that opened only three months apart: the visionary, ahead-of-its-time one-act musical/opera hybrid Trouble in Tahiti and Wonderful Town, his greatest musical comedy collaboration with Comden and Green.
