Gower Champion first rose to stardom as half of the most celebrated dancing team since Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Marge and Gower Champion appeared in a popular series of MGM musicals and eventually became household names, when they were given their own television show. But when Gower began directing on Broadway, he quickly became one of the most respected choreographers in New York.
After directing Dick Van Dyke in BYE BYE BIRDIE, he went on to direct Anna Maria Albergetti in CARNIVAL, Mary Martin and Robert Preston in I DO! I DO!, Debbie Reynolds in IRENE, and Carol Channing in HELLO, DOLLY! His career culminated in the Broadway mega-hit, FORTY-SECOND STREET.
The songs he helped to introduce are legion, including “Put On A Happy Face,” “Love Makes the World Go ‘Round,” “My Cup Runneth Over,” and the title song from HELLO, DOLLY!
