Put on a happy face because the Tony Award winning composer of Bye Bye Birdie, Applause, Annie, and countless others, Charles Strouse, invites Rob and Kevin into his penthouse apartment for a two part interview about his life and career.

Charles pulls back the curtain on his career, including how a Texas oil tycoon became his biggest benefactor, what was the inspiration behind “Once Upon a Time”, and why Sammy Davis Jr. was his best audience!

Also, Charles shines the spotlight on Gower Champion, Bert Lahr, and Chita Rivera!
