It Happened on Broadway
An Oral History of the Great White Way
Myrna Katz Frommer and Harvey Frommer
"Sixty years of mesmerizing history, from all the hits to all the flops."—Liz Smith
From the living memories of the people who created the magic of Broadway theater, It Happened on Broadway illustrates the history of Broadway, its triumphs and failures, its constant variety, and enduring glories. "There’s no people like show people to take you behind the scenes [of Broadway theater]. The Frommers haven’t written a history of Broadway. They’ve woven one from the recollections of an all-star cast of more than one hundred actors, directors, producers, designers, choreographers, publicists, authors, composers, and even critics."—The San Francisco Examiner "
It Happened on Broadway is a fine compendium of chat from theater greats who love talking about their careers, their shows, their lives."—San Jose Mercury News
Myrna Katz Frommer and Harvey Frommer are a husband-and-wife team specializing in oral history. The authors of such notable books as It Happened in the Catskills, It Happened in Brooklyn, New York City Baseball, and Growing Up Jewish in America, they live in Lyme, New Hampshire, and both teach at Dartmouth College in Hanover.
