As the only book dealing with Will Rogers on the stage, this volume fills an important gap in the life story of the humorist. Will Rogers at the Ziegfeld Follies recreates an exciting era when audiences laughed at the homespun humor of this legendary national figure-one of the most popular and influential Americans of the twentieth century.   The Ziegfeld Follies used their bodies to lead a life of glitz and glamour. And believe it or not, most found it empowering. Florenz Ziegfeld’s business cards read “Impresario Extraordinaire”. And from until the final Follies show in the late s, no one questioned its veracity. Ziegfeld’s longest-lasting legacy is his Follies Author: All That's Interesting.

Florenz Ziegfeld () has become a mythical figure in the annals of American show business. Born in Chicago, the son and namesake of a classical musician and music teacher, he opted for a career in popular entertainment, first as a booker of vaudeville acts and later, as the producer of a number of plays mainly to showcase the talents of his first wife Anna Held.   How Florenz Ziegfeld used comedy, sex, exoticism and style to perfect a whole new variety of musical entertainment. His is a brisk, rollicking book, history as chatty, intimate conversation.

Florenz Ziegfeld, Jr. was born in Chicago on Ma (Some published sources list March 21 -- I have not seen solid documentation to verify which is the correct date.) His German immigrant father ran the successful College of Music, and raised his family in an atmosphere of relative comfort. A rich and entertaining biography of Broadway’s first auteur. Ever the witty and erudite raconteur, Mordden (All That Glittered: The Golden Age of Drama on Broadway, –, , etc.) transports readers to the time when Times Square was just an intersection of y after Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. arrived in the s, the new subway system made 42nd Street and Broadway a hub.
