Mark York will accompany the singers on piano. "The creative output of lyricist-librettist Alan Jay Lerner and composer Frederick Loewe," read press notes, "who collaborated on some of the best-loved shows in Broadway history (including Brigadoon, My Fair Lady, and Camelot), is examined through rare radio and television clips from the Paley Center archives, live performances by Broadway and cabaret performers, and narration by musical director Aaron Gandy."

Footage shown will include Julie Andrews and Rex Harrison re-creating their rehearsals for My Fair Lady on the 1960 CBS show "The Fabulous Fifties" and Andrews, Richard Burton and Robert Goulet performing selections from Camelot on "The Ed Sullivan Show."
