Personal Quote:

When you're dealing with songwriters, I think you're dealing with the most intuitive kind of guys. None of them can explain where the hell their stuff is coming from. They're all a little nuts - and it comes out. See, everybody forgets that the purest example of abstract art in our world is music. Music gives you all of those things - love, hate, anger, fear - all of it in abstract form. See more »

Trivia:

Frank Loesser and his musical, "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" at the Porchlight Music Theatre in Chicago, Illinois was nominated for a 2014 Joseph Jefferson Equity Award for Midsize Musical Production. See more »
