Some Enchanted Evening-The Songs of Rodgers & Hammerstein
Some Enchanted Evening-The Songs of Rodgers & Hammerstein
Music by Rodgers, Richard | Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II | Concept by Jeffrey B. Moss | For Jerry Kravat Entertainment Services, Inc.
More so than any composer and lyricist who have written for the stage, the songs of Rodgers & Hammerstein have become an integral part of our everyday lives. We sing them in the shower, we dance to them in ballrooms, we hear them on the radio and in clubs and, yes, in elevators and supermarkets too. We still thrill to them on the live stage in their respective shows, and we teach them to our children. This stunning collection of compositions places five performers in a theatrical setting-first 'backstage,' where the songs are sung as personal interplay, and then 'onstage.' While offering the performers an opportunity to explore the songs within their own styles and sensibilities, it offers the audience a glorious parade of genuine hits.

Writers Notes for Some Enchanted Evening-The Songs of Rodgers & Hammerstein


Written By: Jeffrey B. Moss

SOME ENCHANTED EVENING is a celebration of songs that have become a part of our lives. We sing them in the shower ad we sing them to entertain and amuse. This show places five performers -- each of whom could easily be cast in any Rodgers and Hammerstein show -- in a theatrical setting -- first 'backstage,' where the songs are sung as personal interplay and then 'on stage' where the songs are 'performed' for the audience. Of course, the songs themselves and the five performers are the most important elements. Each singer must bring his own style and personality to the songs and to the situations in which they are set. For example, when Curley sings 'Surrey' to Laurie he wants to ask her out. Each actor must find his own way and own style to achieve that result, just as each actress will find her own special way of making 'I Cain't Say No' work as a very contemporary look at a woman's relationship with men, etc. The performers play themselves, and it's a wonderful opportunity for them to explore the songs within their own styles rather than within the boundaries of the original characters.
