Forgot to mention in that last entry that I also recently saw State Fair (the 1945 Rodgers & Hammerstein musical version).
I wasn't impressed. The story's kinda goofy, and the songs are mostly nothing special. Nice to finally hear "It Might as Well Be Spring" in context, and "It's a Grand Night for Singing" is catchy, and there are a couple cute lines here and there, but overall nothing special.
(Quick digression re catchy music: I've been having a lot of earworms lately. In particular, I recently purchased the soundtrack to the Buffy musical episode, "Once More, With Feeling," from the iTunes Music Store, and listened to it, and "Going Through the Motions" and "Walk Through the Fire" have been running through my head for days as a result. Sigh.)
There are still a couple of Rodgers & Hammerstein musicals I haven't seen: Carousel, Cinderella, maybe one or two others. But now that I look at what else of theirs I have seen, I'm not sure I want to complete the set; the only one of the ones I've seen that I actively liked was Sound of Music.
I am, though, kinda interested in seeing the 1936 version of Kern & Hammerstein's Show Boat, if for no other reason than that Paul Robeson is in it.
