Event Description

They were the last of the great Romantics: lyricist Alan Jay Lerner, a well-bred New Yorker with a Harvard education, and composer Frederick Loewe, 17 years older, classically trained and born in Berlin. Together they fashioned four of the most beloved and romantic musicals of all time: My Fair Lady, Camelot, Brigadoon and Gigi, writing for stars Rex Harrison, Julie Andrews, Richard Burton and Leslie Caron.

You’ll hear your favorite songs from all four musicals, including “If Ever I Would Leave You,” “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face,” “Gigi” and “Almost Like Being in Love”—and so much more. It’s a remarkable story of two men who saw the world the same way, writing straight from their hearts during what Lerner called the “sundown of wit, eccentricity and, if you will, elegance.”

The Musical Theater Project (TMTP) showcases the finest theater songs while exploring the cultural and historical impact of musical theater as an American art form. Often referred to as a "docu-concert" or live documentary, TMTP’s concerts combine live performance with dozens of rare still images and video clips.
