Richard Rodgers, the legendary composer best known for his collaborations with lyricist Oscar Hammerstein II, was born on this date in 1902. To celebrate his birthday, we're taking a look back at original musicals of Rodgers and Hammerstein, from 1943's Oklahoma! (currently running on Broadway in a radically reimagined, Tony-winning revival) to 1959's iconic The Sound of Music.
