Fast Lerner

Alan Jay Lerner was one of the most popular lyricists of the 20th century. He also wrote the books to his musicals, which is a major talent in itself.  With his regular partner Frederick Loewe he created Brigadoon, Paint Your Wagon, My Fair Lady and Camelot, not to mention the film Gigi. He also worked with other name composers, including as Kurt Weill (Love Life), Burton Lane (Royal Wedding, On A Clear Day You Can See Forever) and Leonard Bernstein (1600 Pennsylvania Avenue),

He also married eight times, a different sort of talent.
