This chapter charts the development of the musical Camelot, and examines the problems Lerner, Loewe, and Moss Hart had in getting the piece to Broadway. After the strain of the show, the Lerner and Loewe partnership broke up, and Lerner looked to Richard Rodgers for a new collaboration. The chapter reveals the struggles of the early 1960s, including the problems of working with Rodgers, the frustrated attempts to make a musical about Coco Chanel, and the difficulties in bringing Camelot to London.

Keywords:   Richard Rodgers, Alan Lerner, Coco Chanel, Camelot, Moss Hart
