Oscar Hammerstein was born into a storied theater family; yet, following his father's wishes, he tried to become a lawyer. But musical theater was his calling, and with a number of collaborators his work re-shaped and re-defined this American art form. This two-part program led by Susan Benjamin, features some of Oscar's most memorable lyrics with explanations of how his personal life led to his writing songs that read like poetry.
