Broadway: The American MusicalHigh Definition
#104 "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning (1943-1960)" [TV-PG]
The new partnership of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II changes the face of Broadway forever, beginning with the record-breaking Oklahoma! in 1943. Carousel and South Pacific set a new standard in which story is all-important, and South Pacific, with its theme of challenging racial bigotry, goes on to win a Pulitzer Prize. In On the Town, an exuberant team of novices—Leonard Bernstein, Betty Comden, Adolph Green, and Jerome Robbins—captures the energy, humor, and pathos of New York City during World War II. Irving Berlin triumphs again with Annie Get Your Gun, introducing the unofficial musical theater anthem "There's No Business Like Show Business." And in shows like Guys and Dolls, My Fair Lady, and Kiss Me, Kate, sophisticated adaptations of literary material prevail. [High-Definition]
