South African born Roland Perold leads this charming trip through memory lane as he explores hits from the Golden Age of Musical Theatre featuring composers like Bernstein, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Cole Porter, and many others. The debonair Perold entertains from the piano with a new twist on many familiar tunes that have shaped the careers of these great writers. Armed with his deep love of the genre anecdotes are shared and important questions asked, like: Why is it that musical theatre characters need to burst into song in the first place!? And just how do you solve a problem like Maria?
