Sadly, this is the final episode in this wonderful series. Sue concludes by looking at the legacy of Rogers and Hammerstein, who were responsible for the Golden Age of musicals. One such legacy was partnerships such as Lerner and Loewe, responsible for Brigadoon and My Fair Lady.  However, mentoring was another important legacy: Leonard Bernstein mentored Stephen Sondheim and Sondheim mentored Lin-Manuel Miranda, composer of Hamilton.
