With songs by Rodgers & Hammerstein and an updated book by Tony-winner David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), this new version of the 1958 Broadway musical honors the original while giving it a more modern, romantic sensibility. The glorious score features the delightful "A Hundred Million Miracles," "I Enjoy Being a Girl," "Grant Avenue," "You Are Beautiful" and "Love Look Away," and the show tells the entertaining story of young Chinese immigrants learning to live in America, as the older generation struggles to retain its classical culture. Enjoy the production outdoors under the stars at the beautiful Woodminster Amphitheater. Learn More

I think the actors were exceptional and spoke with deep intellect. It was different from other plays I've seen. Because of the title, I was expecting some musical dance and song along with the plot, but it was mainly about the record songs played and about introducing the new group bands like the Plastics and others. I really enjoyed the story and actors. Thank you!

I just went to see The Arsonists in the Aurora Theater. It was boring... Then I decided to bring my friend to see Rock and Roll, we loved it!! I think these guys worked so hard to bring this performance to life. This is not an easy playfull comedy...continued
