More than seven decades after his death, the name of Florenz Ziegfeld
still embodies Broadway at its most glamorous. His Follies remain
legendary, and his Show Boat is still one of the most beloved musicals
of all time. With his gift for publicity and his devotion to "glorifying
the American Girl," he royally earned his reputation as one of the greatest
showmen the theater will ever know.
