We’ve Grown Accustomed to Lerner and Loewe: A Robert Wyatt Lecture

September 10, 2015 by Beth Colt

Lerner and Loewe’s My Fair Lady experienced a six year run which smashed all previous records, cemented stardom for Julie Andrews and Rex Harrison, and immortalized the names of its creators. In temperament, personality and background, Lerner and Loewe were perhaps the most dissimilar of all songwriting teams, two men who somehow accommodated their often tempestuous relationship to generate brilliantly crafted musical productions—Brigadoon, Paint Your Wagon, My Fair Lady, the filmGigi, and finally Camelot. What a pair of songwriters!

The images of the decorated rooms, fabric and details in this book are from Mr. Luddington’s private collection. He still works as a design consultant to members of the Kennedy family in Hyannis Port.

The home of Rose and Joe Kennedy was in many ways the home of the entire Kennedy clan. From family celebrations to family tragedies, the big house was the center of their lives. During the Kennedy presidency it was also the site of important government meeting with both national and foreign dignitaries. Robert Luddington captures these important photos of the main house.
