Mary Rodgers, Broadway Composer & Author, Dies at 83

Jonathan Schwartz remembers Mary Rodgers: 

"I received the news of Mary Rodgers’ death with sadness. Mary was one of two daughters of Richard Rodgers and his wife Dorothy.  

She was an accomplished songwriter, author of children’s books and wrote for the theater. Her work includes Once Upon A Mattress, From A to Z, The Mad Show and Hot Spot, as well as writing the children’s books Freaky Friday, Summer Switch and The Rotten Book.

Her son Adam Guettel has been a successful lyricist and composer: Light in the Piazza and Floyd Collins.

My very best to the Rodgers family,
