“ AN EVENING WITH RICHARD RODGERS”


“ June Is Bustin’ Out All Over,” “My Favorite Things,” ”If I Loved You,” “I’m Just a Girl Who Cain’t Say No,” “That’s Why the Lady is a Tramp” — these were among songs composed by Richard Rodgers in a six-decade career, and performed by LCP’ers Andrew Fenniman and John Mulcahy, with guest Nancy Durgin, in a packed clubhouse on the evening of August 19. Reprising a program that the three created for the Bristol Mills Congregational Church concert series and have presented at performance spaces throughout the region, the trio has distilled Rodgers’ output of some 900 songs into a smooth, melody-filled hour spotlighting a generous three dozen numbers. Produced with simplicity — Andrew and Nancy, the vocalists, on stools; John, arranger and accompanist, on an electric piano — the show, titled “An Evening With Richard Rodgers,” showcased three dozen of Rodgers’ songs, ranging from his early popular hits with lyrics by Lorenz Hart (“”This Can’t Be Love,” “Falling in Love With Love,” “Where or When”) to his classic Broadway shows written with Oscar Hammerstein II (Oklahoma, Carousel, South Pacific, Sound of Music) and, late in Rodgers’ career, with Stephen Sondheim. One portion of the show showcased Rodgers’ affection for waltzes, with such numbers as “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World,” “Edelweiss.” “Out of My Dreams,” “Ten Minutes Ago” and, appropriately, “Do I Hear a Waltz?”

John and Andrew, year-round LCPers, drew on their early careers in professional theater: John as musical director for numerous shows produced for Broadway as well as national and international tours, and Andrew as a singing actor in several regional stock theaters, including the Maine State Music Theater. Nancy Durgin, an educator by profession, has performed throughout the region, including at the Boothbay Playhouse.

The trio is at work on a new show featuring the songs of Irving Berlin.
