Most widely held works by Harvey Frommer
It happened on Broadway : an oral history of the Great White Way( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is a book filled with the light and magic of Broadway theater, told from the living memories of the people who created it. What made Carol Channing decide to go into the theater? What great musical did Moss Hart first hear in kindergarten? What positions did Neil Simon, Robert Redford, and Manny Azenberg play on Barefoot in the Park's softball team? These and hundreds more stories make It Happened on Broadway a fascinating, informative, and very intimate picture of the life of the theater." "Noted oral historians Myrna and Harvey Frommer bring us not only actors, directors, producers, composers, lyricists, and playwrights but also critics, publicists, set designers, and sage managers - over one hundred of Broadway's mainstays. They take us from the towering dramatic successes of the years before and after World War II, through the triumph of the book musical in the fifties and the great dance musicals, up to the current ascendance of the megahits."--Jacket

10 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What a time! In the heady days after World War II, a nation was ready for heroes and a great city was eager for entertainment. Baseball provided the heroes, and the Yankees, the Giants, and the Dodgers - with their rivalries, their successes, their stars - provided the show. Harvey Frommer chronicles how in those eleven remarkable years Yankees, the Giants, and Brooklyn Dodgers won a collective seven pennants and nine World Series; Joltin' Joe DiMaggio stepped gracefully aside to make room for a young slugger named Mickey Mantle; and the Brooklyn (but not for much longer) Dodgers achieved the impossible by beating the Yankees in the 1955 World Series. This classic book includes rare interviews with Monte Irvin, Rachel Robinson (Jackie's widow), Walter O'Malley, former New York City Mayor Robert F. Wagner, Mel Allen, Duke Snider, Eddie Lopat, Phil Rizzuto, Jerry Coleman, and New York media figures."--Jacket
