Songs from lesser known works such as 'State Fair' and "Me and Juliet', modest successes such as 'Flower Drum Song', and hits like 'Carousel, 'Oklahoma', 'The King and I', and 'The Sound of Music', are featured in this revue.
The production is set in an evening garden, complete with a lovely romantic fountain and garden benches. The setting enhances the simple, romatic theme and is highlighted by beautiful romantic music for which Rogers and Hammerstein are remembered.
