THE SCREENING ROOM: Remembering the Music of Richard Adler (Video)
22 Jun 2012
Broadway songwriter Richard Adler, who delivered the hits "Hey There," "Steam Heat" and "Whatever Lola Wants" to Broadway – and the American Songbook – died June 21 at the age of 90.
Adler and his Pajama Game and Damn Yankees writing partner Jerry Ross were writing Broadway musicals at a time when Broadway songs regularly crossed over to radio and the catalogue of American standards.
Playbill has collected some favorite renditions of Adler and Ross' tunes.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
