When we think of Broadway’s great Leading Ladies, we invariably think of Mary Martin and Ethel Merman. But every decade or so, a certain British star would light up The Great White Way and set a completely new standard for what female characters could do in a musical play. George and Ira Gershwin first saw Gertrude Lawrence in 1924 and immediately wrote a show for her called OH, KAY! in which she introduced the Gershwin masterpiece “Someone to Watch Over Me.” During the next four decades, the Gershwin’s, Cole Porter, Noel Coward and Rodgers and Hammerstein all wrote significant scores for her (including LADY IN THE DARK and THE KING AND I) in which she introduced songs like “I’ve Got a Crush on You,” “My Ship,” “Hello, Young Lovers” and “Someday I’ll Find You.”
