With special guest Albert Evans
This is a Special Encore release of one of my personal favorite episodes!
You may not know the name, Trude Rittmann, but you have certainly heard her music.
During the "Golden Age of Broadway" (and beyond) she composed music for 33 Broadway musicals including Carousel, Brigadoon, South Pacific, Fininan’s Rainbow, The King and I, My Fair Lady, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Peter Pan, The Sound of Music,andCamelot.
In this episode Albert Evans and I tell the story of one of the least known, but most significant, women in the history of the Broadway musical.
