Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - At any given time a piece of musical theater by Rodgers and Hammerstein is probably being performed. As the biggest force on Broadway when Broadway was the biggest force in entertainment, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein created a string of popular Broadway musicals in the 1940s and 1950s, initiating what is considered the "golden age" of musical theater.
Directed by Alfonso López, this magical show offers a glorious parade of unforgettable hits from the best musicals of all time, and places four of PV's best singers on The Main Stage: renowned soprano Vanessa Amaro from the national conservatory of music; Alfonso López a classically trained musician/singer with a Masters in music; Hal Bonta, and Kami Desilets, two veteran stage actors with hundreds of Broadway Musicals on their resumes.
The simplicity of the stage is perfect for showcasing the fabulous voices of these talented singers as they perform all your favorite songs from some of the best Musicals of all time, including:
"I Whistle a Happy Tune", "Hello, Young Lovers" and "Shall We Dance?" from The King and I
"In My Own Little Corner" from Cinderella
"My Favorite Things", "Climb Ev'ry Mountain", "Maria", "Sixteen Going on Seventeen" and "The Lonely Goatherd" from The Sound of Music
"It Might As Well Be Spring" from State Fair
"The Surrey with the Fringe on Top" from Oklahoma!
"I'm Gonna Wash that Man Right Outta My Hair", "There is Nothin' Like a Dame", and of course, "Some Enchanted Evening" from South Pacific

Despite being an "Opening Night" season ticket holder, I have repeatedly expressed, that I generally prefer waiting a few shows to allow all of the kinks and glitches to be worked out. I will say, without question, this was the best opening night performance I have seen. As I said on another post, Broadway quality! - Jim Davis
