Summer was almost over, and the new Broadway season shaping up. It was time to get down to some serious business: Lorenz Hart was broke and Richard Rodgers needed work, too. However, producers were hardly beating a path to their door; Hart and Rodgers were chastened to discover they were looked on as yesterday's men. Oh yeah, Rodgers and Hart, that collegiate stuff. It doesn't go any more. Rodgers and Hart did some more work on On Your Toes and tossed some other ideas around, but nothing jelled. Toward Christmas, Larry and an old collaborator, the one-legged Laurence Stallings, down on his luck after a spell in Hollywood, decided to put together a revue, which seemed to be the kind of entertainment producers were looking for. They had a “bicycle” — an idea — for something with a South American flavor; they even wrote a song for it called “Muchacha,” which Rodart published at the beginning of 1935.

Keywords:   Lorenz Hart, Richard Rodgers, On Your Toes, Laurence Stallings, song, Muchacha
