''A Grand Night for Singing'' is a sophisticated, polished musical revue that celebrates one of the most enduring partnerships in musical theater — Rodgers and Hammerstein.
This 1994 show, playing at Actors’ Summit in Akron, puts a fresh, at times unexpected spin on scores of this duo’s classics, featuring sparkling musical arrangements by Fred Wells.

If you love Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II as I do, you'll enjoy "A Grand Night for Singing", a musical stroll down memory lane with some of the greatest songs ever written for American musical theatre.
This breezy 75 minute revue features more than 30 tunes spanning the lesser-known "State Fair" and "Flower Drum Song" to hits like "Carousel," "Oklahoma," "South Pacific" and "The King and I."
 These golden oldies may seem corny and dated to younger audiences, but to this reviewer, they burn bright as ever.

Actors’ Summit’s “A Grand Night for Singing” is a well thought out musical review that streams a collection of unrelated songs from unrelated shows into a story of romance and love.  The singing is top notch with remarkable piano accompaniment.  Make the drive to Akron to see this one.
