Music Man" slipped in rather unobtrusively and quietly to Broadway. But the excitement it created in that theater on open night was without p r e c e d e n t . S p o n t a n e o u s response to the rhythm of the music was the result -something that had never been seen before on Broadway. "Thf? Musir Mnn" is so named for a swindler named Harold Hill who goes from town to town selling the idea of forming a local hoy's band. Since he cannot read a note of music and knows nothing about training a band, he is just a con man who absconds the money as soon as he has made the deal. When he comes to the town of River City, Iowa in the year 1912, Harold's racket does not quite work out. The influence of the charming town librarian and music teacher, Marian Paroo is too much for Harold. In the end, Harold becomes an honest person and the music man and the librarian fall in love. Robert T. Slach returns to the playhouse as guest director and will be assisted by Susan Schaumberg who also has command of The Rustlers, the pre-shuw }ruup at the playhouse. Cast in (he role of Harold Hill is a tclentcd newcomer to the Chuckwagon stale, Duncan Holloman. An actor-singer of much experience, he holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from Southern Methodist University and has studied at The Manhattan School of Music and The Boston Conservatory. He has performed roles from Thomas Jefferson in "177fi" to Curly in "Oklahoma!" in theaters across the coutry. Hollomon hails from Broklinc, Mass. Burton wants quick divorce NEW YOKK ( A P I - Richard Burton wants a quick divorce from Elizabeth Taylor so he can marry Susan Hunt, a 27- year-old British blonde he has been seen with lately, columnist Earl Wilson reported Wednesday. Wilson, reporting in the New York Post, said that was the inside explanation of the split between the actor and actress which led to her departure from New York on Tuesday for California. The article said Burton asked her for the divorce because he wants immediately to marry the estranged wife of British racing car driver, James Hunt. Wilson quoted a source close to Burton and Miss Taylor as saying. "Elizabeth didn't know about his wishes until she came here to sec him." Miss Taylor flew here from London earlier this month to be with Burton, who is appearing in the Broadway show, "Equus." The source said Ihit when Miss Taylor was told vl Burton's plans, she said, "Wiy (he hell did you have me come all this way to tell me this?" Burton's lawyer, Aaron Frosch, said Tuesday he had prepared a separation agreement between the couple but had no instructions about a possible divorce. The Burtons were first married in 1964 after a romance that began in Rome while they were making the motion picture. "Cleopatra." It was hci fifth marriage, his second. They were divorced June 6, 1974, and remarried last Oct. 10 in Botswana.
