Robert Lee

Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee met in 1939 and shortly thereafter became an inseparable pair. In addition to adapting Patrick Dennis's novel Auntie Mame into a comedy hit on Broadway, the prolific pair are also well-known for Inherit the Wind, which ran for three years on Broadway. Other Broadway productions include First Monday in October, The Incomparable Max, Dear World, Diamond Orchid, A Call on Kuprin, Only in America, The Gang's All Here, Shangri-La, and Look Ma, I'm Dancin'! Lawrence and Lee won two Peabody Awards for distinguished Achievement in Broadcasting and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Theatre Association.
