Allegro archiveIn 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 tranquillity 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. With a gorgeous, epic score by Richard Rodgers and a ground-breaking book by Oscar Hammerstein II, Allegro opened in 1947 to the highest advance in Broadway history.

Music Richard Rodgers. Lyrics Oscar Hammerstein.
