It's a Rumor, but it's being widely reported that The Rodgers & Hammerstein company may be for sale. The publisher controls not only the great musicals by Rogers and Hammerstein, but many others.
As I write this, (9/3/08) I note that the website for Rodgers & Hammerstein (rnh.com) is down.
UPDATE: 09/04/08 – Billboard is now reporting that the R & H Catalog is indeed for sale. The company is reportedly in talks with all of the major music publishing firms and is looking for a price in the low 6 figures.
