Event Description

They were known as Broadway's "merry pranksters." That's because the legendary team of Betty Comden and Adolph Green were lifelong kids: irrepressibly sassy from the time of 1944's On the Town to The Will Rogers Follies 50 years later. As lyricists, they worked with some of the best composers of their time -- Leonard Bernstein, Jule Styne, Cy Coleman -- in an extraordinary partnership on Broadway and in Hollywood. Every time Singin' in the Rain cracks you up, it's thanks to Comden and Green's witty screenplay. But they weren't just funny. Our multi-media live concert will also showcase such lovely ballads as "The Party's Over," "Make Someone Happy," "Some Other Time" and the iconic "Never Never Land" from Peter Pan.
