About this title


The legendary lyricist, playwright, screenwriter and performer reveals her life offstage and behind the scenes, her difficulties with her daughter, the loss of her son to drugs, and people who changed her life forever


It's hard to believe that Betty Comden is still out there writing musicals more than 50 years after she helped pen the immortal words, "New York, New York, a helluva town . . ." for Leonard Bernstein's On the Town. In her new memoir the distaff half of the team of Comden & Green ("Betty & Adolph" to insiders) looks back on a life that took her from tart Greenwich Village revues in the 1930s, through her early Broadway successes in the 1940s, her Oscar for Singing in the Rain and a long Broadway songwriting career that has included Peter Pan, Bells Are Ringing, Wonderful Town, On the Twentieth Century, The Will Rogers Follies and more projects currently underway. Backstage stories about the likes of Leonard Bernstein, Mary Martin and Kevin Kline are mixed with lessons learned as a working woman and wife.
