Broadway aims to save the history of Hammerstein's farm | WFMZ 69 News
October 27, 2017
DOYLESTOWN, Pa. - Will the curtain soon close on Oscar Hammerstein's Bucks County Farm or will the spotlight shine once again?
As singer Doreen Taylor sings there's perhaps no better spot to showcase the Broadway tune "Show Boat" than inside the home where Oscar Hammerstein wrote it.
"Look at the landscape. 'Oh What a Beautiful Morning' was the first song wrote on the property, how could you not be inspired by the property?" Taylor said.
Taylor is so inspired by Hammerstein's Doylestown Farm that she's performing 10 shows on the songwriter's life Off Broadway in New York City, with proceeds going to save the farm.
"This is not something, you know, like a mini mart that we don't want to tear down. This is real history," she said.

That's the night that the lights went out on Broadway | Sushisays.com

On a beautiful morning this week I was fortunate enough to be invited to a community and press introduction to the upcoming Off-Broadway benefit "An Enchanted Evening: A Night With Oscar Hammerstein II" debuting on December 8 and starring Doreen Taylor and Davis Gaines.
In the continuum of moments in my beautiful Bucks County this one was one of the best. Doreen Taylor performed two songs from the upcoming show and I got the Broadway "chills". Not only does she possess a voice of purity and clarity, but she interprets the music with the grace and styling of one who is classically trained (which she is) but also deeply aware of the masterful songs she's "channeling". To be in the living room of Oscar Hammerstein with Taylor singing the songs created in that same perimeter of space left me gobsmacked.
As Lou Lanza played the notes to perfection, Doreen owned that space and suddenly the Doylestown hills were alive with the sound of music. It was the kind of Broadway moment that is almost more Broadway than Broadway (if that makes any sense?).
