John Raitt Facts
Was originally told he was too tall to play Curly in "Oklahoma!" Hammerstein was so impressed with his voice that he decided Curly could be a tall man.

To celebrate the twentieth anniversary revival at Lincoln Center of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Carousel" (in which he recreated his original stage role of Billy Bigelow), Raitt made an appearance on the "Today" show in which he sang the entire score of the show (even the songs written for female singers only!).
