Save The Date! Performances June 9th, 7:30, June 10th, 7:30, June 11th, 3:00. Tickets go on sale soon. The Only Man in Town tells the story of the rise and fall of Frank Glazier, the most prominent citizen in Chelsea at the turn of the century. This world premier is a classic tale of a successful entrepreneur who dominates the economic and political life of a small town, only to overreach and lose everything.
