“Let’s start at the very beginning, a very good place to start.”Do-Re-Mi, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “The Sound of Music”
Due to overwhelming public demand, My Favourite Things returns after a sold out season last year. Focusing on the events surrounding the writing of the world’s most beloved musical, The Sound of Music, this biographical show details the fascinating and deeply moving story of Rodgers and Hammerstein – the song writing duo who quite literally changed Broadway forever with their groundbreaking musicals.
Featuring the breathtaking music from the Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “big 5”, namely: Oklahoma, Carousel, The King and I, South Pacific, and The Sound of Music, as well as a wide array of classics from the Great American Songbook (including “New York, New York”, “The Way You Look Tonight” and many many more,) this unique musical repurposes these timeless songs, intricately woven into a retelling of the devastating and true story behind these incredible creatives, their musicals, and their enormous success.
From the creator of the sold-out, smash-hits Simply Broadway and The Man & The Mouse, this unique show takes you back to the birth of the Golden Age of the Broadway musical in all its splendour – and is sure to have you humming along with the classics you know and love!
