Ahead of tonight’s professional European premiere of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s musical Allegro, we are pleased to bring you an advance look at the production through these great photos by Scott Rylander.
This new production is directed by Thom Southerland who has also worked on a new adaptation of the book. The production also features new orchestrations.
In 1905 in a small Midwestern town, the wife of a local doctor gives birth to a baby boy, Joseph Taylor Jr. Allegro chronicles nearly four decades in the life of this average Joe – through his childhood, from college dorm to marriage altar, and on to his own medical career; from the tranquility of his hometown to the hectic din of big city life and a mid-life discovery of who he is and what his life is truly about, ultimately learning the most important lessons of all – the value of family, that money isn’t everything and that home really is where the heart is.
Allegro runs at Southwark Playhouse from 5 August – 10 September 2016.
