From Broadway to Hollywood with Richard Glazier

Posted by WVIA Admin on

Airs Sunday, May 31 at 1p and 7:30p, Monday, June 1 at 12a and Friday, June 5 at 9p

Join pianist and historian Richard Glazier for a unique view of Broadway and Hollywood through music. Weaving together interviews, piano performances and commentary, Glazier explores the history of the great music that has been written for Broadway musicals and Hollywood films and television. Glazier brings to this project a lifetime love of Hollywood films and Broadway musicals as well as his proven talent as a host/narrator and pianist.

Among the remarkable people who appear in this special are the late actor Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. (award-winning star of “The F.B.I.” and son of famed violinist Efrem Zimbalist), Broadway veteran Patricia Morison (star of the original production of “Kiss Me Kate”), composer Lalo Schifrin (composer for films and television), author Daniel Selznick (son of famed producer David O. Selznick, grandson of Louis B. Mayer, founder of MGM); composer/conductor David Newman (son of Alfred Newman, longtime head of the 20th Century Fox Music Department and composer of over 200 film scores), Miles Kreuger, founder of the Institute of the American Musical, and Gene Allen, former president of the Motion Picture Academy and the Art Directors Guild, Academy Award-winning art director (“My Fair Lady”), and longtime production manager for famed director George Cukor.

Each of the fascinating interviews relates to, and is shown in conjunction with, a musical selection. For example, we see Patricia Morison talking about her role in “Kiss Me Kate”, her relationship with composer/lyricist Cole Porter and the song “So In Love”. We then see Richard Glazier perform a glorious piano transcription of the song.
