WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The musical theater stage was always more open, more sophisticated, and more provocative than movies and the radio, especially from the beginning of Prohibition to the early 1960s. Songs by Cole Porter, Noel Coward, Rodgers and Hart routinely titillated audiences and roused the ire of the censors. "Better When It's Banned" features their raciest songs, along with an amusing overview of censorship on stage, on the radio, and in Hollywood.
