The American Musical Theatre was built on great songwriters whose names can't be said without their partners'. Oklahoma!, The Sound of Music, and Cinderella might as well be credited to one hyphenated name, Rodgers-and-Hammerstein. Today we take a look at some equally inseparable duos with an emphasis on Lerner & Loewe and one of their masterpieces, Camelot. Join us as we learn about the battle of the Richards (Burton and Harris), how much the Tonys committee snubbed the original show, and why Camelot seems to be universal homeschooler sewing music.
