Taking place in 1904, ‘Meet Me in St. Louis’ is an optimistic musical about the Smith family of St. Louis. Life is wonderful in St. Louis: the World Fair is about to begin and love is in the air.
This happy world crumbles when Mr. Smith runs into financial trouble and announces that the family will have to move to New York. Soon, the family has packed all their things and is about to start the move. At the last minute, Mr. Smith realizes how much his family loves St. Louis. To the joy of everyone, Mr. Smith announces that the family will not leave St. Louis after all and “doesn’t want to hear another word about it!”
