Poppa Don't Preach to Me - Frank Loesser from Hollywood to Broadway
Before his Broadway immortality from composing Guys and Dolls and How to Succeed, Frank Loesser was a successful and prolific lyricist in Hollywood, collaborating with Hoagy Carmichael, Burton Lane, Jimmy McHugh, and Jule Styne on such song classics as Heart and Soul, Two Sleepy People, and I Don't Want to Walk Without You among many others.
The success of his music brought Spring Will Be a Little Late This Year, I Wish I Didn't Love You So, Poppa Don't Preach to Me, On a Slow Boat to China, and Baby It's Cold Outside.
His first Broadway success was the Ray Bolger vehicle, Where's Charley, introducing the showstopping Once in Love with Amy. Join us as we revisit this wonderful repertoire by a great American musical treasure.
