BIOGRAPHY

In the annals of theatrical collaborations, there have been many songwriting partnerships, including Rodgers and Hart, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Bock and Harnick, Strouse and Adams and Kander and Ebb. For the last four decades, Kander and Ebb have been creating successful stage musicals with the dominant theme of entertainment, whether in the nightclubs of Weimar Germany ("Cabaret"), a court of law ("Chicago"), the imagination of a prisoner ("Kiss of the Spider Woman") or the dance marathons of the Depression ("Steel Pier"). The welding of Ebb's wry, witty and sometimes biting lyrics to Kander's mournful ballads and brassy showstoppers has resulted in several contemporary classics, notably the title song from "Cabaret."
