his children

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.
