SHY The Alarmingly Outspoken Memoirs of Mary Rodgers

by | Read by Christine Baranski, Jesse Green

Biography & Memoir • 15.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Christine Baranski brings intelligence, energy, and impeccable timing to her narration of this tell-all memoir. She gets Mary Rodgers's flighty, self-referential tone and intensively candid style. Mary is the daughter of Richard Rodgers, the renowned co-creator of hit Broadway musicals such as THE SOUND OF MUSIC, and an icy decorator mother who "loved but didn't like" her. She wrote one successful musical, ONCE UPON A MATTRESS; hundreds of songs; and the kids' book FREAKY FRIDAY. She also worked with Leonard Bernstein and had a lifelong friendship with Stephen Sondheim. The mother of six and philanthropist is proudly sexually liberated and an admitted snob in addition to being witty, self-effacing, and a fine storyteller. Coauthor Jesse Green delivers the audiobook's notes and supplies commentary and an insightful epilogue. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2023]
