Synopsis: · The author is the first person outside the family to have access to Hart’s diary

· Dozens of never-before-published photos—many from his family

· Written with the consent and cooperation of Hart’s widow, Kitty Carlisle Hart, and
his children

· Frank, thoroughly researched, insightful look at the Golden Age of Broadway

· Features interviews with dozens of Hart’s
colleagues, including Gregory Peck, Julie Andrews, Robert Goulet, and many more
He’s a legend of The Great White Way whose very name is synonymous with the Golden Age of Broadway Moss Hart. In Moss Hart: A Prince of the Theater, acclaimed biographer Jared Brown examines this Pulitzer Prize–winning legend with a meticulously researched, sensitive look at the life and work of a major American artist. Brown examines Hart’s early days writing with George S. Kaufman, his collaborations with Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Kurt Weill, and Ira Gershwin, his career as a movie director, and his final act as director of the stage smashes My Fair Lady and Camelot. More than just an assessment of Hart’s career, this is a personal portrait as well, with frank discussions of Hart’s rumored bisexuality, his battles with anxiety and depression, and his marriage. This long-awaited biography, written with the full cooperation of Hart’s family and friends, is truly the definitive picture of a theatrical giant.

About the Author: Jared Brown, the author of Alan J. Pakula: His Films and His Life, Zero Mostel, and The Fabulous Lunts, has directed more than seventy productions. The former chair of Illinois Wesleyan’s School of Theatre Arts, he received the DuPont Award for Teaching Excellence in 1997. He lives in Bloomington, Illinois.
