12-11-2018 12:00:00 12-11-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Broadway Close Up: When Broadway Went to Hollywood | 7:30 pm With Host SEAN HARTLEY. Featuring ETHAN MORDDEN, author of When Broadway Went to Hollywood, plus a cast of Broadway stars TBA. As talkies replaced silent films in the 1920s, some of Broadway's greatest talents headed west to Hollywood, enticed by the promise of national exposure and financial success. What happened when these ambitious songwriting pioneers encountered a drastically different culture where despotic studio bosses ruled, and the industry looked upon musicals with suspicion? Host SEAN HARTLEY will interview ETHAN MORDDEN, author of When Broadway Went to Hollywood, exploring how songwriters like Rodgers & Hart, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Yip Harburg, Irving Berlin and the Gershwin brothers navigated the often antagonistic culture of Hollywood with different degrees of success – and why they ultimately returned to Broadway. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=326023 Merkin Hall Merkin Hall
