Why See Do I Hear a Waltz??

This week's Americans

New York City Center's Encores! series presents this incredibly rare collaboration between Richard Rogers and Stephen Sondheim, marking the only time these two legends of musical theatre ever worked together.

Rogers was over 30 years older than his upstart colleague and although the show was much anticipated, it never quite found its feet. Now, this bittersweet tale of an American abroad is given new life by Encores! in its 22nd season.
