From Fanny Brice, Irving Berlin and Jerome Kern to Barbra Streisand, Alan Menken and Tony Kushner, Jewish performers, composers, lyricists, directors, choreographers and producers have made an indelible mark on Broadway for more than a century. This historical volume captures the story of the Jewish emergence from immigrants in ghettos staging Yiddish productions on New York's Lower East Side to their significant social and cultural impact on the stages of Broadway. Includes insights and anecdotes from a life spent working with many of the Jewish legends of American theater.
