The impact on the musical theater of Richard Rodgers and his two collaborators, Lorenz Hart and Oscar Hammerstein II was immeasurable. With Hart (from 1920 until Hart's death in 1943) Rodgers created a long series of highly successful musical comedies that produced some of the greatest standards of all times, including such classic ballads as "Where Or When", "Blue Moon", "My Heart Stood Still", "Bewitched, Bothered & Bewildered" and "My Funny Valentine" and those marvelously witty comic gems like "I Wish I Were in Love Again", "Mountain Greenery", "Manhattan", and "The Lady Is A Tramp". With Hammerstein (from 1943 until Hammerstein's death in 1960), he literally brought the musical into its own, with such stunning shows as Oklahoma, The King and I, South Pacific and The Sound Of Music, each rich with musical treasures.
