Not big Rogers & Hammerstein fans, I see

They had to name the musical after getting two characters. "Emile deBecque and Ensign Nellie Forbush" baffled them - badly. One guessed "The Pirates of Penzance"! The next must have figured he'd just said the wrong G&S work, and tried "HMS Pinafore".

I couldn't believe it.

And then "Aunt Eller Murphy and Lauie Williams" left them totally blank.

(South Pacific and Oklahoma!)

None of tonight's contestants recognized the two characters each from "South Pacific" or "Oklahoma!" but at least one knew "The Sound of Music" (sigh...). I was dumbfounded, too, Ridger. Of course, we did "Oklahoma!" as our high school musical my senior year (I was in the orchestra), although I would've known all of these answers anyhow. Young people these days -- harrumph!
