Portrait of the author as a Broadway rhymesmith
Maria Jette: “Have you ever wondered what P.G. Wodehouse was up to before he got around to writing 90+ novels about Jeeves & Wooster and various others? Well, he was busy inventing modern American musical theater with Jerome Kern and Guy Bolton, at the Princess Theater on Broadway! And not just with Kern: the long list of Wodehouse collaborators includes Sigmund Romberg, Jean Schwartz, Ivor Novello and more.”
Maria and Dan have released two CDs of Wodehouse music:
- In Our Little Paradise: Songs of P.G. Wodehouse (2011)
- The Siren’s Song: Wodehouse and Kern on Broadway (2014)
Songs from both CDs have been featured on live broadcasts of A Prairie Home Companion, including a show at Town Hall Theater in New York, just a few blocks up Broadway from where the Princess Theater once stood.
