Ted Chapin is the president and chief creative officer of the Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization. He handles especially the performance rights of all Rodgers & Hammerstein musicals. He's been a perennial guest on Singers Unlimited.
In addition to hosting Singers Unlimited and the Blues Break, I'm the theater critic for the WBGO Journal, and a devoted lover of Broadway musicals. Ted and I often talk about the interplay of jazz and Broadway, and on his most recent visit, we talked mostly about the current (and very controversial) revival of the epochal musical Oklahoma! And we listened to classic and new jazz recordings of the show's songs.
