Hit after hit--The way we were, Nobody does it better, and scores for The sting, Sophie's choice, and the Broadway juggernaut A chorus line, made him the go-to composer and performer for film, Broadway, every U.S. President since Reagan and concert halls worldwide. Includes interviews with Hamlisch's family, friends, and collaborators, including his wife Terre Blair Hamlisch, Barbra Streisand, Carly Simon, Steven Soderbergh, Quincy Jones, Christopher Walken, Sir Tim Rice, Joe Torre, Woody Allen, John Lithgow, Lucie Arnaz, Ann-Margret, Sir Howard Stringer, Kelli O'Hara, Brian D'Arcy James, Idina Menzel, Melissa Manchester, Carole Bayer Sager, and others.
