Rodgers and Hammerstein is perhaps the best known partnership of the American musical theater. That is in large part because of the popular movie version of "The Sound of Music." I suspect that most people are also familiar with some of their other musicals such as "Oklahoma!" "Carousel" or "South Pacific." For that reason, even if you don't love the Broadway musical as much as I do, you will find much to enjoy in this book.

Essential reading for the serious Rodgers and Hammerstein fan. This book is full of theatre jargon that might perplex non-theatre folks, but for those who have studied theatre and/or participated in live theatre, it is a fascinating read. I could hardly put it down. It was excellent and I am pleased that it is part of my permanent collection.
