Died: April 26, 2000
High of His Life: I’m not sure there was a high point because most of his life was completely amazing. He’s known as the best Broadway producer of all time. With more than 80 shows on Broadway over the course of his life the guy was a living legend…well until 12 years ago. 80 shows and 11 Tony Awards.
Low of His Life: He never got to see the revival of Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess…which is probably the best thing to hit Broadway since he passed away.
Who Sees Him As a Hero: Broadway actors, producers, fans, and high school drama clubs across the world.
