The Golden Age: Lerner and Loewe

Debra Dickinson

The lush, romantic musicals of Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe take audiences to faraway times and places. The unlikely partnership of frenzied Lerner and laid-back Loewe produced Camelot, My Fair Lady, Brigadoon, Paint Your Wagon and Gigi. The lecture will discuss how Lerner and Loewe worked together, as well as how their own lives (Lerner was married 8 times!) are reflected in their musicals. The casting of their shows was often paramount to their success. We will view videos of the British non-singing actors, Richard Burton and Rex Harrison, who became Broadway stars in their productions, as well as the stars Lerner and Loewe helped discover: Julie Andrews, Robert Goulet and Leslie Caron.
