In the theater world, there have been many
teams that have made shows together. Perhaps none is as famous, though, as that of the partnership between Richard Rodgers
and Oscar Hammerstein II. Rodgers and Hammerstein are the partnership behind such classics as Carousel, South Pacific, The
Sound of Music and The King and I. It all began, though with the musical Oklahoma!
Oklahoma! was the first musical Rodgers
and Hammerstein worked on together, and it was an adaptation of an earlier play. Their musical version was about the Oklahoma
territory during the 1900s, and a love story that happens between a cowboy and the daughter of a farmer. The musical has remained
a classic for generations, and is a can't-miss for fans in Washington, D.C.
Oklahoma! is one of the shows that helped revolutionize the theater world during its debut. A major reason for that comes
from the awe-inspiring score. The score for Oklahoma! is full of now-favorites like "Oh What a Beautiful Morning," "The Surrey
with the Fringe on Top," "People Will Say We're In Love" and Oklahoma!" Hear them all by checking out the show in Washington,
