Guy Bolton

Guy Bolton was born in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire, England, on November 23, 1884. Bolton famously collaborated with Jerome Kern and P.G. Wodehouse on a series of buoyant musicals for the 299-seat Princess Theatre, including Have A Heart; Oh, Boy!; Leave It To Jane; Oh, Lady! Lady!; Sitting Pretty, Oh, Kay! and Rosalie. In the twenties, Bolton forged a partnership with George and Ira Gershwin. All six of their collaborations, including Girl Crazy, resulted in hit shows. Bolton wrote or collaborated on more than 50 shows between 1915 and 1965, including Anything Goes. He died in London on September 5, 1979.
