Join Jenni Samuelson on a tour through the Rodgers and Hammerstein canon. Samuelson will share her research surrounding musicals such as Oklahoma, Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I and Flower Drum Song and the groundbreaking themes these musicals dare to address through story and song: the need for eradicating racial, ethnic and cultural prejudices and the promotion of tolerance.
