"Musical theater lovers will rejoice at the discovery of this completely rewritten, significantly expanded, illustrated edition of The Sound of Their Music, Frederick Nolan's authoritative biography of Broadway's "dynamic duo" - Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein. Timed to coincide with the centennial year of Richard Rodgers, the book tells the intimate story of the creation of this spectacular pair's most beloved musicals, and the people who took part - including Lorenz Hart, Jerome Kern, Gene Kelly, Julie Andrews and Mary Martin, to name just a few."."This expanded edition includes never-before-published material on Rodgers's early career with Lorenz Hart, as well as his later work, and features recollections from such theater legends as Sheldon Harnick, Martin Charnin, Stephen Sondheim and Arthur Laurents. A brand new appendix summarizes the continuing importance of Rodgers and Hammerstein's brilliant work, from 1978 up to and including the present year."--BOOK JACKET.
