Taste and imagination, the two key ingredients for a first-rate revue, abound in this fresh take on the Rodgers & Hammerstein canon conceived by Tony Award winner Walter Bobbie. This new R&H musical opened the 1994 Broadway season with flair and distinction, garnering wildly enthusiastic notices as well as earning two Tony nominations, including Best Musical. With innovative musical arrangements including a sultry Andrews Sisters-esque “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Out-a My Hair,” a swingin’ “Honeybun” and a jazzy “Kansas City,” there is no question about how terrifically up to date the remarkable songs of R&H remain.
