The concert features a starry cast of Broadway and West End favorites to celebrate the iconic musical theatre writing duo, including Audra McDonald, Marisha Wallace, Daniel Dae Kim, Patrick Wilson, Aaron Tveit, Julian Ovenden, Maria Friedman, Michael Ball, Lucy St. Louis, and Joanna Ampil, along with Anna-Jane Casey, Lily Kerhoas, Jonny Labey, and Jordan Shaw.

A PBS broadcast is scheduled to air via Great Performances May 31 (check local listings).

The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization is presenting, with Concord Originals, Concord Theatricals, Killimanjaro Live/JAS Theatricals, and Trafalgar Entertainment producing.

Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II began collaborating with 1943's Oklahoma!, a landmark musical that is considered the genre's first to fully integrate the book, lyrics, and choreography as agents of forwarding the plot. They would go on to dominate Broadway over the next two decades as both a writing and producing team, writing a string of classic musicals including Carousel, South Pacific, Allegro, The King and I, and The Sound of Music; and producing I Remember Mama and Annie Get Your Gun.

The stream will be hosted on the Kiswe platform. Learn more about what's needed to stream the concert on your computer or device here. Kiswe also has instructions for getting streams to your TV via AirPlay or Chromecast.
