“When all the world is a hopeless jumble…”
These are the opening lyrics to one of the most famous songs in history, “Over The Rainbow.” Indeed, much of Yip Harburg’s long career, on Broadway and in Hollywood, carried an idealistic yearning for America’s golden promise. In a nod to the very first ever Lyrics & Lyricists event, when Harburg himself took to our stage, a stellar cast shows us how time’s perspective has proven his songs and ideas to be enduring antidotes to what can often seem a cynical world.
