Before they were a team, Rodgers and Hammerstein each had their own successful writing partnerships. Hammerstein partnered with popular musical theater composer Jerome Kern on numerous productions, including their most popular Show Boat. Four guest vocalists and 80-voice chorus will perform selections of hits including Ol’ Man River, Make Believe, Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man.
Meanwhile, Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart collaborated on over 30 productions filled with now classic songs – My Funny Valentine; Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered; This Can’t BeLove; I Married An Angel; and Little Boy Blue performed by legendary singers such as Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Maurice Chevalier, Nat King Cole, Janice Joplin, and Johnny Mathis.
