Summary
  • The long-running partnership of Betty Comden and Adolph Green is certainly the most remarkable example of tenacious teamwork in the annals of the musical stage. As librettists, lyricists, and performers, they have been working together for nearly six decades and are still going strong. The New York Musicals of Comden and Green brings together three of their greatest Broadway triumphs: On the Town (1944) and Wonderful Town (1953), with music by Leonard Bernstein, and
  • Bells are Ringing (1956), with a score by Jule Styne. The New York Musicals of Comden and Green re-creates on the page an important chapter of the "Golden Age" of the American musical theatre. It also captures the soul and heartbeat of a city that managed to fulfill the dreams of lonely sailors, ambitious sisters from Ohio, and a love-struck telephone operator who, happily enough, does not have to go back to the Bonjour Tristesse Brassiere Company
