Show Description:

The Ohio Light Opera was founded in 1979 as a Gilbert and Sullivan repertory company. By the turn of the century, the repertoire had grown to encompass 71 works from the operetta canon. Over the past 20 years, OLO has further expanded its repertoire—now at 146 titles—to include stage works of most of the greatest composers and lyricists of traditional American musical theater. Not only did innovators like Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Rodgers & Hammerstein, and Lerner and Loewe drive the evolution of the Broadway musical, but—quite unlike the musicals of today—many of their show songs became popular hit tunes of their day. Join us in this casual cabaret performance as we look back at some of the most well-known and beloved songs from the mid-century musicals that OLO has produced. Songs featured include “The Impossible Dream,” “You’re Just in Love,” “My Funny Valentine,” “I’ve Got Rhythm,” and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain.”
