An Enchanted Evening Featured in The Princeton Packet

An Enchanted Evening: A Night With Oscar Hammerstein II debuting on August 24th at the Bristol Riverside Theatre was featured in the Princeton Packet. Headliner Doreen Taylor sat down with the paper and discussed the brand new show in this wonderfully in depth interview.

"He really was ahead of his time, and he paved the way for so many topics and things people weren't talking about at the time," Taylor says. "He was really liberal and he pushed the envelope in many different ways. It's intriguing and I'm so glad I'm going to be able to teach a theater full of people something about him. I really wanted to make a show where even someone who knows a lot about him will walk away learning something and on the same side, somebody who doesn't know anything will come away enlightened. So we're going to try to do that and also do some great music, with great performances of his best stuff."

Doreen Taylor on Playbill.com

"An Enchanted Evening: A Night With Oscar Hammerstein II" starring award winning singer and Billboard Top 100 recording artist Doreen Taylor was featured on Playbill.com. The in-depth piece highlights the current movement to help save 'Highland Farm' where Oscar Hammerstein II lived and created some of Broadway's greatest musicals (Sound of Music, The King & I, Carousel, South Pacific, Oklahoma!, etc) and the brand new show/musical revue that has been created by Taylor to help raise money and awareness.

Taylor told Playbill, “I grew up performing in many of the great shows that Oscar Hammerstein II helped create and I have always been very fond of his work. In March, I happened to meet Will and Mandee Hammerstein (and Oscar IV!!) at a music video premiere party I hosted for my single ‘Unstoppable’ in Philadelphia. We really hit it off and I learned about how Highland Farm's future was being threatened and I immediately offered to step up and help. It seemed like a no-brainer for me to lend my talents to the cause in the best way I could—through music and performing. I created this show from a very special place in my heart and as a labor of love. I honor Oscar and will always be grateful for forever changing the landscape of musical theatre history and being able to help save this legendary landmark is a great honor for me.” Click here to read the whole story!

The show debuts on Thursday, August 24th 7:30pm at the Bristol Riverside Theatre (120 Radcliffe Street Bristol, PA)
