Danielle Tarento presents
Music by Richard Rodgers
Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
In 1905 in a small Midwestern town, the wife of a local doctor gives birth to a baby boy, Joseph Taylor Jr. Allegro chronicles nearly four decades in the life of this average Joe – through his childhood, from college dorm to marriage altar, and on to his own medical career; from the tranquility of his hometown to the hectic din of big city life and a mid-life discovery of who he is and what his life is truly about, ultimately learning the most important lessons of all – the value of family, that money isn’t everything and that home really is where the heart is.
With a gorgeous, epic score by Richard Rodgers and a ground-breaking book by Oscar Hammerstein II, Allegro opened in 1947 to the highest advance in Broadway history. It was hailed as “A work of great beauty and purity” by The New York Times. Almost 70 years later, this extraordinary musical is finally getting its European première.
Presented by special arrangement with R&H Theatricals Europe.
Saturday 3 September at 3.00pm at Southwark Playhouse, 77-85 Newington Causeway, London SE1 6BD
