A pure delight. Lerner, a librettist, and his partner, composer Fritz Loewe, were giants of the American musical theater. Together they were responsible for such Broadway hits as BRIGADOON, PAINT YOUR WAGON, MY FAIR LADY, GIGI and CAMELOT. David Case's reading captures Lerner's understated brilliance, wit and sophistication, and provides insight into how much hard work it took to make it all look easy. The listener is transported into a sadly bygone era of magic and grace when giants like Moss Hart, Richard Burton and Rex Harrison ruled the stage. These are cruder times, full of coarser fare, but this audio will leave you humming. "Oh, wouldn't it be lover-ly." M.D.B. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 00]
