Theatre Thursday #7
And we're back for another edition of Theatre Thursday – one of my favorite days of the week! Today's puzzle commemorates 14-Across, who was born on this day in 1887. In his nine decade career, he probably worked on at least a handful of shows that you like. Some highlights include: The Boys From Syracuse, Pal Joey, On The Town, A Tree Grows In Brooklyn, Wonderful Town, The Pajama Game, Damn Yankees, Once Upon A Mattress, Fiorello!, and A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum (pictured above). To name a few. He also produced and wrote the book for many of these as well. The actual list of shows he worked on is too lengthy to go through, but that's what Wikipedia is for ;) Enjoy today's puzzle and I hope it gets at least a few show tunes stuck in your head.
