This star-studded gala celebrates the centenary of the birth of legendary Broadway composer Richard Rodgers. The performance at London’s Theatre Royal, Drury Lane includes songs, dance, staged numbers and anecdotes featuring leading stars from both Broadway and London’s West End. The cast comprises of luminaries drawn from “Oklahoma! Kiss Me, Kate!” “Chicago”, “The King and I” as well as other productions from television and the London stage.
