Broadway Puzzler #54

Both the original Broadway musical and its film version made a a true star of the leading female performer. Neither was the same woman, but both became synonomous with one song from the score. The film spawned a sequel based on the original source material but which starred neither woman.

Name the musical
Name the Broadway and film stars
Name the sequel

Bonus points for:
Name of the sequel
Female stars of the sequel
Author of the original source material

Oh my goodness, I've never been the very first one to answer. Did I get it? Did I get it? Did I get it?
