Meadow Ridge Presents Oscar Hammerstein III
The Hammersteins set the stage for Broadway. Join us for their story.
His family history is alive with the sound of music. They built Broadway, one hit at a time.
Join us as Oscar Hammerstein III presents how his family transformed New York’s theatre district. Drawn from his book, The Hammersteins: A Musical Theatre Family, you’ll hear the saga of bright-light success, as well as hidden scandals and tragedies — both onstage and off.
In four generations, they went from immigrants to icons, building theatres and promoting stars. Our guest’s grandfather made Hammerstein a household name, penning some of the most celebrated shows in history — The Sound of Music, Oklahoma, and The King and I. Come discover how this dynasty of drama shaped the Great White Way.
Pianist Roger Young will welcome guests beginning at 1:30 p.m. and continue after the event.
Refreshments will be served.
