"Who knows, some day I will win too." — Dorothy Fields
Tin Pan Alley, Broadway and Hollywood may have been boys’ clubs, but that didn’t stop some bold, brilliant women from breaking through. Led by Dorothy Fields, lyricists and composers like Betty Comden, Carolyn Leigh and Mary Rodgers crafted astonishing songs and shows: “The Way You Look Tonight,” "I Can't Give You Anything But Love," "Witchcraft," On the Town, Once Upon a Mattress and more. Salute this sisterhood with Fields biographer and Lyrics & Lyricists artistic director Deborah Grace Winer.
