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.

While high belters rule Broadway today, during Broadway's Golden Age the baritone was king - which means that the great male numbers written by the likes of Irving Berlin, Rodgers & Hart, Rodgers & Hammerstein, The Gershwins, Sigmund Romberg, Cole Porter, and others of their iconic ilk, were largely written for baritones. But William Michals is the one Broadway star of today who is the singular baritone born for that great music.

There are eight million stories in the Naked City-and a song to go with each of them. For decades, songwriters - from Porter, Rodgers & Hart and Ellington to Bernstein and Billy Joel have been fueled by this city's places, promises and roller coaster existence. With Lyrics & Lyricists production of New York: Songs of the City, artistic director Deborah Grace Winer had the ultimate show for New Yorkers-or anyone who's ever wanted to be one. Vocalists Klea Blackhurst, Darius de Haas, La Tanya Hall, Leslie Kritzer, Jeffrey Schecter, and pianist/vocalist Billy Stritch-brought the sounds of the city to life on March 21, 22 and 23.
