MUSICAL GREATS: JEROME KERN with Dr. James Kolb
Thursday December 7, 2017
If for nothing else, we remember Jerome Kern today as the composer of the musical Show Boat and such unforgettable songs as Old Man River, Lovely to Look At, Look for the Silver Lining, Make Believe, Yesterdays, and They Didn’t Believe Me. But Kern made an even larger contribution to the American musical theatre. Working with Guy Bolton and P.G. Wodehouse, Kern paved the way for the great musicals of the 1920s and beyond. In their Princess Theatre shows such as Very Good, Eddie and Leave It To Jane, they set a standard for literacy and sophistication which would make possible the later innovations of Rodgers and Hart, George and Ira Gershwin, and many others.
