July 25-Aug. 2: WSU showcases songs of Rodgers and Hart

Beguiled-Again-230PULLMAN, Wash. – “Beguiled Again: The Songs of Rodgers and Hart” will be performed by the Washington State University School of Music at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, July 25, 26, Aug. 1 and 2, in Bryan Hall.

Tickets will be for sale at the door, an hour before each show, for $10 general admission and $5 students and seniors (60+).

Composer Richard Rodgers and lyricist Lorenz Hart worked together on 30 stage musicals, nine films and more than 500 songs from 1919 until Hart’s death in 1943. Some of the best-known songs included in the show are “Blue Moon,” “Isn’t It Romantic?” “The Lady is a Tramp” and “My Funny Valentine.”

This production of nearly 50 songs provides an ever-changing emotional journey through the urbane and melancholy, the sardonic and romantic. There is no linear plot or narrative; rather, the songs are grouped thematically to tell their own stories and reveal their splendor in the process.

News media are welcome at rehearsals, 6-8 p.m. Monday-Thursday in Bryan Hall. Dress rehearsals will begin at 6 p.m. July 22-24.
