This chapter focuses on Dorothy's return to writing lyrics via the new musical, Up in Central Park. She and Herb wrote the libretto together, as they had for their previous three shows. The composer was an old friend but a new collaborator: Sigmund Romberg. Up in Central Park is a mixture of fact and fiction. Similar to stage and screen biographies—musical or otherwise — its story was essentially fiction with an anchor in history. In this it differs from Oklahoma! or Carousel, which are also set in the past, but without characters who had actually made news in their time.

Keywords:   Up in Central Park, women songwriters, Up in Central Park, Sigmund Romberg, Broadway musicals
