Here is a book filled with the light and magic of Broadway theater, told from the living memories of the people who created it. What made Carol Channing decide to go into the theater? What great musical did Moss Hart first hear in kindergarten? What positions did Neil Simon, Robert Redford, and Manny Azenberg play on Barefoot in the Park's softball team? These and hundreds more stories make It Happened on Broadway a fascinating, informative, and very intimate picture of the life of the theater
Quote of the Day
- John Kander: "At that time, I had yet to have a hit show. But every so often, Zero would throw his great beefy arm around my shoulder and say,

Kander, and I'm a talented man, and fuck'em all."
