Flower Drum Song
Richard Rodgers (Music); Oscar Hammerstein II (Lyrics); David Henry Hwang (Book)
Palo Alto Players offers a gift to Bay Area audiences in producing the rarely performed Flower Drum Song, but the present is all the more welcome because of a production that is conceived and performed with the look, sound, style, and acting one might expect of a company and stage much larger. This is the kind of musical theatre evening that leaves those exiting humming, smiling, and thinking, “Who can I go call to be sure they come to see this hit before it closes May 12?”
