Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella (Original Broadway Cast Recording) Q&A.
Rodgers and Hammerstein were an American songwriting duo consisting of Richard Rodgers (1902 – 1979) and Oscar Hammerstein II (1895 – 1960). They are most famous for creating a string of immensely popular Broadway musicals in the 1940s and 1950s, during what is considered the golden age of the medium. Five of their shows were outstanding successes: Oklahoma! (their first collaboration); Carousel; South Pacific; The King and I; and The Sound of Music.
Prior to his work with Hammerstein, Richard Rodgers (1902-1979) collaborated with lyricist Lorenz Hart on a series of musical comedies that epitomized the wit and sophistication of Broadway in its heyday. Prolific on Broadway, in London and in Hollywood from the '20s into the early '40s, Rodgers & Hart wrote more than 40 shows and film scores Read full bio.

Rodgers and Hammerstein had already re-invented the Broadway musical with their pioneering Oklahoma! and Carousel, which integrated dance, story, and song as never before in the service of realistic drama. Now they were dealing head-on with a lines subject that confronted the social changes and tensions sweeping America. For their part, Dick Rodgers and his wife, also named Dorothy, were well aware that no amount of artistic success could enable them or their two teenage daughters to crack the elite social clubs, resorts, and cotillions that barred Jews from membership. South Pacific would be a not-so-quiet statement of protest, but it’s hard to remember just how forward-leaning the subject matter was in any context at the time, much less as the spine of a Broadway musical.
