A GRAND NIGHT FOR SINGING features innovative musical arrangements of tunes from nearly a dozen Rodgers & Hammerstein shows. Contemporary treatments include an Andrews Sisters-esque “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair,” a swingin’ rendition of  “Honeybun,” and a hot, jazzy arrangement of “Kansas City.” Hearing these tunes in a fresh “up to date” fashion further demonstrates how timeless the songs of R&H remain.

The Quality Hill Playhouse production of A GRAND NIGHT FOR SINGING plays April 22 – May 22.
