About this title


Includes the complete book and lyrics, and more than 100 photographs. On the Town * Wonderful Town * Bells are Ringing. "Lovers of witty musical theatre will surely enjoy The New York Musicals of Comden and Green." - Christian Science Monitor * "The perfect gift!" - The Hollywood Reporter * "As handsomely illustrated a trio as you'll ever find between two covers." - San Francisco Examiner * "A must for vintage musical fans!" - Cleveland Plain Dealer

From Library Journal:

In 1944, a pair of New York City cabaret performers teamed up with choreographer Jerome Robbins and composer/conductor Leonard Bernstein to create the sparkling hit musical On the Town. Comden and Green went on to write the book and lyrics for many Broadway shows and movie musicals, including the all-time favorite Singin' in the Rain. Collected here in this attractive title are the complete librettos for On the Town (1944), Wonderful Town (1953), and Bells Are Ringing (1956) along with cast lists, a discography, and many photos. The authors' brief introduction to each project offers a tantalizing look at New York theater in a period of great creative energy and leaves the reader wishing they would write a book focusing on their careers. Recommended for larger musical theater collections.?Kate McCaffrey, Onondaga Cty. P.L., Syracuse, N.Y.
