Lorenz Hart

Richard Rodgers

A former vaudevillian, now working as a music professor, convinces the Russian Ballet director to stage his student’s jazz ballet, ultimately performing the lead in the ballet and arousing the jealousy of the prima ballerina’s boyfriend — as well as the disappointment of the female music student who loves him.
