Merman made her Broadway debut in the Gershwins' ''Girl Crazy'' and was an immediate smash, to the point where George Gershwin, upon hearing that she had never taken a singing lesson in her life, advised her to keep it that way. The lengthy career that followed put anyone before or since to shame, including roles in some of Broadway's most legendary and influential musicals.
