The Music Man is set 1912, and follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys' band that he vows to organize – this, despite the fact that he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he begins to develop feelings for Marian, the town librarian. Family fun for all.

Ti Moune, a peasant girl, rescues a wealthy boy from the other side of the island, Daniel, with whom she falls in love. Unbeknownst to Ti Moune, the pompous gods who preside over the island make a bet with one another over which is stronger, love or death, the stakes being Ti Moune's life. When she pursues Daniel, who has returned to his people, Ti Moune is shunned because of her lowly status. Her determination and capacity to love, though, is not enough to win Daniel's heart, and Ti Moune pays the ultimate price; but the gods turn Ti Moune into a tree that grows so strong and so tall, it breaks the wall that separates the societies and ultimately unites them.
Hamlet is summoned home for his father's funeral and his mother's wedding to his uncle. In a supernatural episode, he discovers that his uncle has murdered his father. Hamlet feigns madness, murders the "prime minister," loves and then un-loves an innocent whom he drives to madness, plots and then un-plots against the uncle, directs a play within a play, successfully conspires against the lives of two well-meaning friends, and finally takes his revenge on the uncle, but only at the cost of almost every life on stage, including his own and his mother's.
