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.
