Findlay, Ross, White, Wilson, et al. Set for NYPL's Carolyn Leigh Tribute
Leigh's family donated her papers to the Library's famed Billy Rose Theatre Collection, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary.
Leigh, who died in 1983, wrote the lyrics for such shows as Peter Pan, Little Me, Wildcat, and How Now Dow Jones. She also wrote such popular songs as "The Best Is Yet to Come," "How Little We Know," and "Witchcraft." She also contributed to the film scores of The Cardinal and Father Goose.
Other participating artists will be Margery Beddow, George Costacos, Michelle Nicklas, and Sarah Zahn. Ross will also act as the event's musical director.
