Throughout a career that spanned four decades, Oscar Hammerstein II used the theatre to promote human understanding. He continually tackled themes of racism and cultural bias, changing the very course of musical theatre in the process. These issues are considered through such songs as “Ol’ Man River” from SHOW BOAT, “You’ve Got To Be Carefully Taught” from SOUTH PACIFIC and many others from such beloved musicals as THE KING AND I, FLOWER DRUM SONG, THE SOUND OF MUSIC and CAROUSEL. Hammerstein believed wholeheartedly in celebrating our differences instead of fearing them, as simply and eloquently expressed in his musical PIPE DREAM – “It takes all kinds of people to make up a world.”
