A Grand Night for Singing - 1993 - Broadway

Broadway's tribute to the genius of Rodgers & Hammerstein is truly A Grand Night for Singing. This Tony-nominated Best Musical shows how wonderfully timeless their music is! You'll love the sultry Andrews Sisters-esque "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Out-a My Hair." Find out "How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?," sung by a lovelorn young lad. Take delight in "Shall We Dance?" when it's a comic pas de deux. There are over 30 songs from Rodgers & Hammerstein shows, including Oklahoma!, The Sound of Music and Cinderella... It doesn't get any grander than this! Independence Studio on 3.
