Personal Quote:

[on the creative process involved in developing "Porgy and Bess"] The brothers Gershwin [George Gershwin, Ira Gershwin], after their extraordinary fashion, would get at the piano, pound, wrangle, swear, burst into weird snatches of song and eventually emerge with polished lyrics.

Star Sign:

Virgo
