The Ballad of John Latouche

Howard Pollack

Oxford University Press

The chapter explores some of Latouche’s very last projects. One was the aborted musical with composer Coleman Dowell for David Merrick to be based on Eugene O’Neill’s Ah, Wilderness! (The musical eventually materialized as Take Me Along, with a score by Robert Merrill.) He also made a hilarious contribution to Ben Bagley’s Littlest Revue (1956). His very final undertaking, left incomplete at his death in 1956, was The First Time, a musical version of the Adam and Eve story with music by Milton Rosenstock and sets by Frederick Kiesler.

Keywords:   Coleman Dowell, Eugene O’Neill, David Merrick, Ben Bagley, Frederick Kiesler, Milton Rosenstock, Take Me Along, Robert Merrill, Ezra Stone
