Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein are the reason we hum tunes when we leave a theater. They are the reason we know what a beautiful morning is. They warned us that children could be carefully taught. They challenged, they wooed, they asked us to be better, to be more. Through music and lyric they left a legacy of joy, pain and love. Together they were the most successful American musical team from the 1940s through the 1950s. They amassed 34 Tony Awards, 15 Academy awards, 2 Grammy awards and the Pulitzer.
This auction item is special, and would be great for enthusiastic theatre kids!
