Abstract:

"Here is a book filled with the light and magic of Broadway theater, told from the living memories of the people who created it. What made Carol Channing decide to go into the theater? What great musical did Moss Hart first hear in kindergarten? What positions did Neil Simon, Robert Redford, and Manny Azenberg play on Barefoot in the Park's softball team? These and hundreds more stories make It Happened on Broadway a fascinating, informative, and very intimate picture of the life of the theater." "Noted oral historians Myrna and Harvey Frommer bring us not only actors, directors, producers, composers, lyricists, and playwrights but also critics, publicists, set designers, and sage managers - over one hundred of Broadway's mainstays. They take us from the towering dramatic successes of the years before and after World War II, through the triumph of the book musical in the fifties and the great dance musicals, up to the current ascendance of the megahits."--Jacket.
