As Ever, Oscar: Letters and Lyrics of Oscar Hammerstein II
Oscar Hammerstein virtually invented the modern musical with his lyrics and librettos for Show Boat, Oklahoma!, Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I, Cinderella, and The Sound of Music. The Library is home to the Hammerstein Collection, which includes over 20,000 letters from and to Oscar. Mark Horowitz has designed a concert that intersperses readings from these letters with songs that relate to them. You’ll hear well-known and much-loved songs while getting rare insights into the extraordinary man behind them.
