A Letter from Oscar Hammerstein to Richard Rogers

A new Short Story by Jack Matthews is a documentary of a proposed musical between the two famous musical legends. The Story begins:

Dear Dick:

I saw Mary Martin last evening in "Sound" and, you know Dick...I like that show. It's got Moxie, as well as Mary!

A musical based on Colonel Charles Augustus Lindberg's Autobiography, We, A short story about guys and gals who few around America's heart in the years following the first World War in three acts.

I see the action something like this...

Jack is in the final stages of editing this work and I am sure he will share the finished manuscript with our group at future meetings.
