Remember when a “16-bar cut” actually meant half a song? Remember when melodies were so beautifully simple an audience could exit the theater humming at least two or three of their favorites? Spend an evening remembering the revolutionaries of the American musical, whose songs have stayed with us forever: Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II.

Spend the evening with Nick Spangler (The Book of Mormon, Cinderella, and this year’s It Shoulda Been You) as he sings his way through the seemingly limitless melodies of Rodgers and Hammerstein. Favorites you’re sure to recall, such as If I Loved You and Edelweiss, and a few you’re sure to be less familiar with, like You Are Never Away and All At Once You Love Her.

Nick’s soaring baritone was recognized nearly a decade ago when The Theater Hall of Fame awarded him The Elaine and Jerry Orbach Fellowship Award for his performance as Matt in the long-running Off-Broadway production of The Fantasticks!, and in 2013 Nick appeared multiple times opposite Laura Osnes as Prince Topher in the Broadway production of Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella.

With musical direction by David Shenton and special guest appearances by Joyah Love Spangler (Kerrigan and Lowdermilk’s The Bad Years) Jeremy Cohen, and Steve French, the evening is sure to remind you of a time when men sang like men, and why you fell in love with musical theater.

And please remember, the farmer and the cowman should be friends.
