The great Dorothy Fields more than held her own on Broadway at a time when writing musicals was a boys’ club that women were not encouraged to join. The only woman to make it into the top echelon of great songwriters in the 1920s – a group that included the Gershwins, Cole Porter and Rodgers & Hart – she collaborated with Jerome Kern, Cy Coleman and others on hit songs including “The Way You Look Tonight,” “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love,” “On the Sunny Side of the Street” and “Big Spender,” as well as the musicals Sweet Charity and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. In a career spanning more than 40 years, Fields wrote some of the most enduring lyrics of the golden age of the American popular song.
