This chapter begins by detailing the personal losses experienced by Dorothy in 1958, namely the death of Michael Todd in a plane crash on March 22; the death of her brother and collaborator, Herb Fields on March 24, due to a heart attack at age sixty; and the death of her husband just a few months later. It then describes her return to Broadway via the musical Sweet Charity in 1966.
