The Frommers (Growing up Jewish in America, 1995, et. have gathered together the recollections (of widely varying frankness and detail) of actors, playwrights, directors, producers, designers, composers, and critics active in the evolution of theater in New York over the past seven decades. There are also loving but unsparing portraits of the lives and careers of such major innovators as Bob Fosse and Michael Bennett. But those looking for more than a fleeting recognition of the downside of the business, or for some measured consideration of what, precisely, makes a piece of theatre succeed as art should probably look elsewhere.

Readers of It Happened On Broadway are likely to approach this handsomely illustrated and designed new oral history of Broadway before and after World War II the same way. First, they'll thumb through the book and stop, as in a gallery, to read the captions under the many illustrations. Then they'll probably check out the Table of Contents, making a full stop at "Who's Who In the Cast" which gives capsule bios of the approximately 100 theater pros whose reminiscenses serve as the main meal of this text.

The book begins with a "Who's Who In the Cast," a list of the theatre people who will be be quoted throughout the book. The authors describe Anne Kaufman Schneider as "the daughter of playwright Irving Kaufman." In point of fact, she is the daughter of playwright George S. Kaufman and the wife of Irving Schneider. That error is on page xxi. I knew from that moment that the book was well-meaning but historically unreliable. The book is fun to read, just sloppy. Too bad.

I’ve often wished I had sat down with my father, gotten him to start talking about his childhood, his war years, his early married life. This is what memories are made of. And this is what strengthens families and gives us framework. Alas, I didn’t do so. Thus my life is infinitely poorer, and his life is virtually lost to future generations. Myrna Katz Frommer and Harvey Frommer have given us a wonderful book with It Happened on Broadway: An Oral History of the Great White Way. Composed of nothing but transcripts of theater people sitting around talking, this book is invaluable. It is that narrative we want from our fathers, our mothers. It fills us in. We learn about the theater from the horses’ mouths. As a theater buff, a true student of the theater, and, indeed, a child of theater, this is my theater family history. Granted, I never met any of these people, but reading what they have to say is like listening to family members expound on the great and not so great experiences of their lives. Published in 1998, this oral history is important for it preserves memories of so many who are now gone. We hear from legendary composer Fred Ebb (Cabaret, Chicago,) successful producer Cy Feuer (Where’s Charley?, Guys and Dolls,) movie star/dancer Marge Champion (wife of Gower Champion, director of Hello Dolly!,) amazing lyricist Betty Comden (On the Town, Bells Are Ringing,) celebrated actor Charles Durning (Inherit the Wind, That Championship Season,) and many more who are no longer with us. Like those of my father, their memories would be lost (at least to us, the readers) had they not been included in this book. Joining them are others who are still with us like Carol Channing, Linda Lavin, Donna McKechnie, and many others. The Broadway theater discussed here runs the gamut from shows produced in the 1920s to the 1990s, providing a wealth of knowledge and insight into how the theater works. This wonderful book should be on every theater lover’s bookshelf, plus anyone who has only a mild interest in theater will find it fun, not to mention theater scholars who can mine it for their research. It Happened on Broadway is a treasure!

Nice !

I read as many books as I can about Broadway. This one is at the bottom of the list. No substance, just quips over & over by the same people.
