Description

This star-studded gala celebrates the centenary of the birth of legendary Broadway composer Richard Rodgers. The performance at London's Theatre Royal, Drury Lane includes songs, dance, staged numbers and anecdotes featuring leading stars from both Broadway and London's West End. The cast comprises of luminaries drawn from Oklahoma! Kiss Me, Kate! Chicago, The King and I as well as other productions from television and the London stage.


The concert features many of Rodgers' best loved classics: Manhattan, Some Enchanted Evening, Johnny One-Note, Getting to Know You, Kansas City [from Oklahoma!] I Have Confidence, My Funny Valentine, To Keep My Love Alive, If I Loved You, You'll Never Walk Alone and Oklahoma!. One of many great highlights is the sight of a somewhat mature in years Judi Dench wearing pigtails and performing the most knowing and hilarious version of Sixteen Going On Seventeen ever seen on stage.
