From their first hit song in 1925 through their final show-stopper in 1943, the prolific team of Rodgers & Hart was continually redefining the musical theatre with its wit, freshness and intelligence. The brief narration highlights the Rodgers & Hart story, but it's the songs that explain their success. Perhaps master tunesmith Irving Berlin summed it up best: 'Tuneful and tasty, schmaltzy and smart-music by Rodgers, lyrics by Hart.'
Performances are February 4, 5, and 6 at 8 pm; February 7 at 2 pm.
Theatre and Dance Series is the main production season of the Department of Theatre and Dance, consisting of five to seven theatrical productions and three dance concerts annually. Works to be performed are specifically chosen to expose students to the broad spectrum of dramatic and choreographic literature, including timeless classics and contemporary genres. Policies for non-traditional casting ensure equal opportunity for students to explore diverse roles and stretch themselves artistically. Each project is directed and/or choreographed by resident or guest artist directors and choreographers and performed by the Department's theatre and dance majors.
