The Creation of

The Sound of Music

Rodgers and Hammerstein’s last show -- written in 1959, the year before Hammerstein died -- was a distillation of many elements that were present in their four previous landmark musicals, and became, in the 1965 movie version, bigger than all the rest. We’ll discover the absurd way that Rodgers & Hammerstein became involved with the project -- and speculate how Hammerstein might have written the lyric to “Do-Re-Mi”!
