Summary
The Hammersteins is the story of one family that changed Broadway forever. The story begins in 1864, when Oscar Hammerstein I emigrates to America, establishes himself as a successful cigar merchant and turns his attention to the business of music and theaters. His sons, Willy and Arthur, carry on the tradition and nurture such talents as Will Rogers, W. C. Fields, Al Jolson, Houdini, and Charlie Chaplin. Willy's son, Oscar II, becomes the most successful lyricist of all time, writing the story and words to the most memorable of Broadway shows including Showboat, Oklahoma!, South Pacific, and others. Written by Oscar "Andy" Hammerstein (Oscar II's grandson), The Hammersteins presents a multi-layered portrait of the Hammerstein family, complete with personal and professional highlights, as well as the scandals and tragedies
