Three decades after Rodgers and Hammerstein’s final success, The Sound of Music, this collection of their timeless musical treasures opened the 1994 Broadway season. With songs from lesser-known works such as State Fair, Pipe Dream and Flower Drum Song as well as from hits such as Oklahoma!, The King and I and South Pacific, this musical will help you to re-imagine the songs you love. Discover the continued relevance and grandeur of Broadway’s most famous duo in this musical journey through the cycle of love.

This treasury of 37 songs includes these stand outs:
“Surrey with the Fringe on Top” Oklahoma!
“Maria” Sound of Music
“If I Loved You” Carousel
“Some Enchanted Evening” South Pacific
“Do I Love You Because You’re Beautiful” Cinderella
“Shall We Dance” The King and I

“…Rodgers and …Hammerstein outdid even Irving Berlin in writing songs that assumed the status of secular hymns.”  Stephen Holden, NY Times
