On November 12 at Kaufman Music Center's Merkin Hall, Broadway Close Up host Sean Hartley interviewed ETHAN MORDDEN, author of When Broadway Went to Hollywood, exploring how songwriters like Rodgers & Hart, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Yip Harburg, Irving Berlin and the Gershwin brothers navigated the often antagonistic culture of Hollywood with different degrees of success - and why they ultimately returned to Broadway.

Hosted by Sean Hartley, the performance featured author ETHAN MORDDEN, Darius de Haas, Lora Lee Gayer, Jason Gotay, Amy Justman, Barbara Walsh, Music Director Evan Rees and Stage Director Devanand Janki.
