| Hello Daddy! was a Fields family
project. Not only did Dorothy supply the lyrics – her brother Herbert
wrote the book and their father Lew produced and starred in the show.
It also played at the Fields Theatre! |
The plot concerned three men, each of whom believes he is the father of a certain illegitimate child.
It was the last time Lew Fields appeared on stage, and it was Dorothy's
first book musical; it was to be 11 years before she tried her hand
at another. The program of musical numbers shows that Max Steiner
conducted the orchestra; Dorothy teamed up with him in 1935 to provide
a song for the film Alice Adams.
No standards emerged from the score.
