Post ALLEGRO Synopsis
jackissensational in the Random Facts Thread wrote:
I'm looking for a play-by-play style synopsis of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Allegro and can't find a one anywhere. This is the best I can do: "The plot follows the life of "Everyman" protagonist Joseph Taylor, Jr. in a series of vignettes from birth to age thirty-five. Taylor, a doctor, grows up, marries a local woman, Jennie Brinker, and his wife's infidelity eventually drives him to move back home with nurse Emily West to serve the sick and needy. Themes in the musical include the corruption of large institutions." If anyone can hook me up with something (much more) in depth I'd love you forever.

The link to the site above no longer works, but here is a full synopsis of Allegro with the musical numbers slotted in as appropriate.

For the record, David, I did check this thread (and others) before posting that. Aren't you proud of me? And thank you very much for the link you posted; it was extremely helpful-- just what I needed. However, before I read your post I used the search feature on your (?) site/the one in your signature and it didn't bring me to anything on Allegro?

I'm very proud indeed. And the reason it didn't come up on my site was because I only did the page after seeing your request, specially for you.
