OA1032: He Came From Milwaukee

$12.00

HE CAME FROM MILWAUKEE

By Louis Hirsch and Ben Jerome

 

Teaming with Ben Jerome on his first full show, Louis Hirsch, in He Came from Milwaukee, took his first steps toward transitioning the Broadway musical from its vaudeville/music hall/operetta foundation to a more modern musical paradigm, infectiously melodic throughout and imbued with “new-sound” harmonies and rhythms that would be picked up and refined some years later by Jerome Kern.
