Doreen Taylor, Davis Gaines Set for Hammerstein Docu-Musical 'AN ENCHANTED EVENING' Off-Broadway

Fresh from the sold-out premiere at the Bristol Riverside Theatre in Philadelphia, the brand new, innovative "docu-musical" AN ENCHANTED EVENING: A NIGHT WITH OSCAR HAMMERSTEIN II is coming Off-Broadway for a limited December 2017 engagement.

The star-studded evening presents award-winning vocalist and Billboard Top 100 recording artist Doreen Taylor in her official Off-Broadway debut, and a special performance by renowned Broadway star, Davis Gaines (Phantom of the Opera, Sweeney Todd, Man of La Mancha).

Making her official Off Broadway debut benefitting the Oscar Hammerstein II Museum & Theatre Education Center, Billboard charting TOP 100 recording artist, Doreen Taylor raises the bar headlining the new docu-musical, "An Enchanted Evening: A Night with Oscar Hammerstein II" running December 8, 2017 to December 17, 2017 at the 777 Theatre at the Roy Arias Theater Center- 777 8th Ave. (Between 47th & 48th). Special guest performance by Broadway's Davis Gaines. Tickets on sale at Proceeds will be donated to help save Highland Farm in Doylestown, PA.

After receiving critical acclaim in its Philadelphia debut, this cutting edge, 90-minute "docu-musical" highlights Oscar's evolution to become one of the most important lyricists of all time. Possessing a rare opportunity to work closely with William Hammerstein (Oscar Hammerstein's grandson) to obtain private, personal stories, rarely before seen images and videos, and an in-depth glimpse into the life of Oscar Hammerstein, "An Enchanted Evening" is a one-of-a kind, intimate show highlighting Oscar's life and music through documentary story-telling and imaginative performances.

Will Hammerstein has proudly embraced this new production and is thrilled at the docu-musical's success of highlighting the honorable values and principles of which his grandfather embodied. "Doreen's talent and personal values make her a perfect torchbearer for this exemplary legacy [Oscar Hammerstein II]. I'm sure Oscar would be very pleased with the association."

Being able to return to her musical theatre roots in her home state of NY while supporting a cause that helps save a historic Broadway landmark makes this evening an extra special achievement for Doreen.

"I grew up performing in the great shows that Oscar Hammerstein II helped create and to think that the very place these shows were conceived is now being threatened is a travesty. I created this show from a very special place in my heart and as a labor of love. I revere 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."
