A Grand Night for Singing: The Music of Rodgers and Hammerstein

Cross Community Players Winter 2018 Production

Join CCP this February for a heart warming salute to Rodgers and Hammerstein! A Grand Night for Singing features 36 R&H favorites uniquely arranged and reinterpreted. What makes this revue so exciting for actors is the opportunity to perform great songs outside the context of their original storylines. The limitations of age, type and gender are removed. Imagine “Shall We Dance?” as a comic duet or “How do you solve a problem like Maria” sung by a lovelorn guy... that is precisely the kind of invention lavished on this revue. The refreshed arrangements are also inventive including a sultry Andrew Sisters-esque “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Out-a My Hair,” a swingin’ “Honeybun” worthy of the Modernaires, and a jazzy “Kansas City” which leaves no question about how terrifically up to date the remarkable songs of R&H remain.
