Rodgers and Hammerstein were in some ways more than songwriters and musicians: they were social activists. This musical biography with Susan Benjamin demonstrates how, through their music and stories, Rodgers and Hammerstein disseminated important messages about social issues of their time that are still relevant today. Susan intertwines stories, video clips, and music to celebrate the history of American musical theater.
