i recently purchased a copy of I'D RATHER BE RIGHT, IN which Mr. Cohan portrayed FDR; It's a fantasy set in Central Park;, Cohan, as FDR,(no wheelchair in sight) has to balance the budget so the Boy and Girl can get married' Cohan sarcasticly referred to Rodgers & Hart as Gilbert and Sullivan. He also added lyrics of his own which he was forced to remove. the best song in the show IMO actually isn't in the show. It's "everybody loves you when you're asleep". It was removed (so they say) at the insistence George Kaufman, who hated ballads. The play was subtitled A MUSICAL REVUE
