We’ll Have Manhattan: Rodgers & Hart in New York

We’ll Have Manhattan: Rodgers & Hart in New York

Sophisticated, romantic, refined—words that describe New York City … and the songs of Rodgers & Hart.

Before the Broadway successes that would introduce countless songbook classics, Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart were students attending Columbia University and writing musicals for the school’s varsity shows. And NYC was more than just their turf—the city’s elegance was their muse. Conceived by the multi-talented Santino Fontana—Tony nominee, Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella, and star of the upcoming Broadway musical Tootsie—the show celebrates 100 years of Rodgers & Hart with their gems (“Where or When,” “My Romance,” others), and their quintessential valentines to the city (“Manhattan,” “I’ve Got to Get Back to New York”). Join us, as we turn Kaufmann Hall into an isle of joy!
