Mary Rodgers

“Freaky Friday, ” “A Billion for Boris,” “The Devil and Max Devlin.” If any of these titles strike a chord with you…then it’s because Mary Rodgers was their author. Many a time did my daughter and I enjoy “Freaky Friday” in its many incarnations. Mary Rodgers, the successful author of these titles, and, was at the time of her death, chairman emeritus and served on the board of the Juilliard School. Playwright, composer of “Once Upon a Mattress” and other remarkable productions, director of the Rodgers and Hammerstein Organization, parent to five  and daughter of household names Dorothy and Richard Rodgers.  How fitting that the lights on Broadway dimmed in memory of her.
