It may not mean too much to many of you today, but I happened to run across this on Powerline Try To Remember and I thought it was worth remembering.
Composer Harvey Schmidt died last week in Houston at the age of 88. Most notably, Schmidt wrote the music for "The Fantasticks" (don't forget the 'k') and it opened at the Sullivan Street Playhouse in Greenwich Village in 1960 and continued its run for a mere 42 years.
Did you know that Jerry Orbach, well known as Det. Lenny Briscoe on Law & Order, played the character of El Gallo who launched the show when it opened in 1960.
What an interesting life Mr. Orbach lived.
