Lorenz Hart

Richard Rodgers had still not entirely given up hope that Lorenz Hart could be persuaded to participate in the new show; but Hart was adamant. Toward the end of the year, an item appeared reporting that Rodgers and Hart had dropped a Mexican musical called Muchacha they were working on; whose imagination this may have been a figment of, one can only guess. Hart was meanwhile noisily discussing several new projects. One of these, brought to him by author-playwright Paul Gallico, was a story called Miss Underground, for which Gallico proposed they enroll the talents of refugee Emmerich Kalman, the famous Viennese composer. Larry liked it enough to set to work; with great energy he produced seventeen or eighteen lyrics. Joshua Logan always said Rodgers was a superlative editor of Hart's work. Perhaps that was what was missing here.
