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.
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
