From the cover: “Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein played a bigger part in the development of the American musical than any other two men. They were both active in its beginnings in the 1920s, Rodgers with Lorenz Hart, Hammerstein with Jerome Kern and others. This is more than just the story of Rodgers and Hammerstein. It is also that of their collaborators — Larry Hart, Jerome Kern, Arthur Schwartz, Rudolf Friml, Vincent Youmans, Sigmund Romberg — and all those who were creating a new theatrical style: the Gershwins, Cole Porter and many others. It is packed with fascinating theatrical anecdotes and backstage stories. The stars, directors and writers who were there have generously contributed their on-the-spot recollections.”
