Description

Irving Berlin once summed up the pair’s achievement with his famous rhyming maxim: “Tuneful and tasty, schmaltzy and smart—-music by Rodgers, lyrics by Hart.” The Rodgers/Hart partnership resulted in the scores for 30 stage musicals and nine films. (Rodgers, of course, later worked with lyricist Oscar Hammerstein.)

“Beguiled Again” is a cleverly compiled revue of songs and vignettes. One sequence evokes the frenzy of the “Hollywood Machine” with the studio employees racing from one picture to another and a most unlikely starlet who gets “discovered.” A live radio show is presented replete with the slick host, trio of songbirds, and overwrought stage manager who provides all the sound effects including a tap number with the shoes on his hands.

The show’s limited Southern California tour is produced by Broadway singer/actress Teri Ralston, who also performs in the revue. Ralston was featured in the original Broadway casts of Stephen Sondheim’s “Company” and “A Little Night Music.”
