lyrics and libretto

I read that after creating My Fair Lady, Alan J. Lerner had a recurring nightmare about a group of friends coming into a hotel room to ask what he had written after several days locked inside. Surrounded by mounds of crumpled pages, Lerner dreamt he would hold up a sheet and read, “Loverly, loverly, loverly, loverly” – whereupon his friends would cart him off to an asylum. 

Poor man. 

He also frequently left the country to avoid his writing commitments.
