Together, and individually, they have produced the most popular shows, and enduring songs, in Music Theatre over the last 80 years and accumulated a number of honors, including Tony Awards, Grammys, Oscars, and Golden Globes.
Joining Tania Edmunds for the evening are Baritone Steve Beck, and pianist John Woods, bringing you highlights from such Rodgers & Hammerstein shows as The Sound of Music, Oklahoma, South Pacific and The King & I. and from Webber & Rice, Joseph, Cats, Evita and Phantom of the Opera.
