A veritable who's who of Broadway's golden age, including Joshua Logan, Gene Kelly, George Abbott, and many more, recall their uncensored and often hilarious, sometimes poignant memories of the cigar-chomping impresario who composed some of the best lyrics ever concocted for the Broadway stage, but who remained forever lost and lonely in the crowds of hangers-on he attracted.
A portrait of Hart emerges as a Renaissance man and endearing bon vivant conflicted by his homosexuality and ultimately torn apart by alcoholism.
