Over Three decades after the duo’s final collaboration, The Sound of Music, took the world by storm, it was this new R&H musical that opened the 1994 Broadway season, gaining wildly enthusiastic reviews. Rogers & Hammerstein probably never imagined Shall We Dance? as a comic pas de deux for a towering beauty and her diminutive admirer , nor did they suspect that one day a lovelorn young lad might pose the musical question, How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?
