Marilyn Bergman. Dorothy Fields. Mary Rodgers. Jeanine Tesori. Betty Comden. Carolyn Leigh. Throughout theater history, there have been a few bold pioneers-in-heels who crashed the boys’ club, and wrote hit shows and songs like Once Upon a Mattress, Sweet Charity, On the Town, “Witchcraft,” “On the Sunny Side of the Street,” and so much more. Join us for an evening dedicated to the female pioneers of songwriting as we pay homage to them for opening the door (and curtain!) for future generations.
Based on an original idea and production for 92Y’s Lyrics & Lyricists™.
