Classic Movie Hub is hosting a You Fascinate Me So: The Life and Times of Cy Coleman book giveaway. The contest ends Saturday, June 6th. Click HERE to enter.
Cy Coleman penned such standards as “Witchcraft”, “Big Spender”, and “The Best is Yet to Come”. He wrote classic musicals such as Sweet Charity, On The Twentieth Century, City of Angels, The Will Rogers Follies, and Little Me. Everyone knows his music, but few know the man behind these timeless tunes–until now. Author Andy Propst takes readers into the world and work of this amazing Tony, Grammy, and Emmy Award-winning composer and performer. Propst explores Coleman’s days as a child prodigy in the 1930s, his time as a hot jazz pianist and early TV celebrity in the 1950s, and his life as one of Broadway’s preeminent composers. A must-read!
