About This Item

New York: Elkins Productions International Corporation, 1969. Draft script for the 1970 musical, which premiered on October 19, 1970 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, and ran for 507 performances, closing on January 1, 1972. Copy number "38" in holograph ink on title page. Based on Frederic Morton's 1962 book "The Rothschilds: A Family Portrait," the musical tells of the rise of the Rothschild family, from their humble beginnings in late 18th century Germany, to a growing financial empire and political influence under Mayer Rothschild (Hal Linden), to assisting in funding Napoleon's defeat, and securing a declaration of right for European Jews. The last collaboration between Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick, one of Broadway's most important songwriting teams. Who in their 14 years working together, wrote seven of Broadway's most beloved musicals, including "Fiddler on the Roof" (1964), "She Loves Me" (1963), and the Pulitzer Prize-winning "Fiorello!" (1959). "The Rothschilds" received two Tony Awards for Best Leading Actor in a Musical and Best Featured Actor in a Musical, nominated for seven others, including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Score and Best Lyrics.
