CREATIVE TEAM

Alan Jay Lerner (1918-1986) and Frederick Loewe (1901-1988) Lyricist/Librettist & Composer wrote some of the most enduring classics of the American musical theater. Born in New York City, Alan Jay Lerner was a Harvard-educated writer who had collaborated with writers such as Leonard Bernstein while in college. Unable to serve in World War II due to a boxing injury that blinded him in one eye, he instead wrote scripts for radio plays. In 1942, he was introduced to an Austrian composer named Frederick Loewe while at the Lamb’s Club, a theatrical hangout in New York City. Loewe, a former piano prodigy in his native Berlin, was looking for a writing partner with whom he could achieve his dream of writing Broadway shows. Lerner and Loewe teamed up, and together they wrote many musicals including Brigadoon (1947), Paint Your Wagon (1951), My Fair Lady (1956), Gigi (1958), and Camelot (1960), Lerner writing the books and lyrics, Loewe the music. After Camelot Loewe retired and Lerner went on to collaborate with a series of different composers including Burton Lane, with whom he wrote On A Clear Day You Can See Forever (1965). With this exception, none of Lerner’s later collaborations were as successful as the musicals he wrote with Frederick Loewe. In 1973, Lerner coaxed Loewe out of retirement to write a musical film adaptation of the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry novel The Little Prince.
