Ferenc Molnar

Ferenc Molnar (1878-1952), Hungarian playwright and novelist, born in Budapest. Several of his plays were presented on the New York City stage, and all were successes, including The Guardsman, Liliom, The Swan, The Glass Slipper, and The Play's the Thing. In 1928 English translations of his Twenty-five Plays were published. Rodgers & Hammerstein used Molnar's Liliom as the basis for the musical CAROUSEL. His plays are characterized by graceful romantic situations and amusing dialogue.
