Jean Browne

Dallas Summer Musicals, 1977

Jean worked directly with composer Harvey Schmidt as the supervising copyist for the first orchestrated version of the show. When he wrote her this note, she discovered his handwriting was used for the show's logo!                                        

                             

Jean:

How fortunate I am to have had someone as charming, talented, and dedicated as you, working on this first orchestrated version of the show.

My endless thanks for all of your difficult work.

Love,

Harvey

"To Jean, with love from Harvey"


Harvey signed and gave Jean his brief case after the show opened. It was large enough to carry orchestral scores.
