On Saturday morning’s edition of Saturday’s Role With Reno, host Renos Spanoudes spoke to Brett de Groot & Kiruna-Lind Devar about My Favourite Things – The Rodgers & Hammerstein Story on stage this weekend only at Joburg Theatre.
My Favourite Things – The Rodgers & Hammerstein Story.
Focusing on the events surrounding the writing of the world’s most beloved musical, The Sound of Music, this biographical show details the fascinating and deeply moving story of Rodgers and Hammerstein – the songwriting duo who quite literally changed Broadway forever with their ground-breaking musicals.
Featuring the breath-taking music from the Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “big 5”, namely, Oklahoma, Carousel, The King and I, South Pacific, and The Sound of Music, as well as a wide array of classics from the Great American Songbook- this show is performed as a musical which repurposes these timeless songs, intricately woven into a retelling of the devastating and true story behind these incredible creatives, their shows and their enormous success.
From the creator of the sold-out, smash-hit Simply Broadway and The Man & The Mouse, this unique show takes you back to the birth of the Golden Age of the Broadway musical in all its splendour – and is sure to have you humming along with the classics you know and love!
