The great Frank Loesser took a circuitous route to Broadway, making a name for himself in Hollywood writing lyrics for film songs before he began writing his own music during WW II. Beginning in the late 1940s, he took Broadway by storm with four huge hit shows: Where’s Charlie?, Guys and Dolls, The Most Happy Fella and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Music director DAVID LOUD (The Visit, Scottsboro Boys, Lyrics & Lyricists series) takes the audience on an unforgettable tour of Loesser’s classic Broadway shows as well as earlier songs written with composers like Jule Styne and Hoagy Carmichael. Featuring Tony nominees KATE BALDWIN (Finian’s Rainbow) and LIZ CALLAWAY, ANN HAMPTON CALLAWAY, MATTHEW SCOTT (Sondheim on Sondheim), ALLISON BLACKWELL and cabaret star MARILYN MAYE. Directed by MARCIA MILGROM DODGE.
