The team of Rodgers and Hammerstein was a multiple award-winning and highly influential Broadway show writing duo. They also weren’t afraid of touching on controversial subjects in their shows. The show we will be hearing music from started as a book, became a highly successful Broadway show, then an award-winning movie. So, get ready to hear cuts from one of the two copies my dad had of this soundtrack with Volume 135: South Pacific.
