Fred Ebb

Details
JOHN KANDER & FRED EBB (Music and Lyrics) The John Kander and Fred Ebb collaboration of four decades has created what many would consider Broadway standards and contemporary classics: Flora, The Red Menace, Cabaret (Tony Award for Best Musical), The Happy Time, Zorba, 70, Girls, 70, Chicago, The Act, Woman Of The Year (Tony Award for Best Score), The Rink, Kiss Of The Spider Woman (Tony Award for Best Score) and Steel Pier. Their collaboration also transferred itself to movies and television as they wrote original material for the Academy Awards, “Liza with a Z” (Emmy Award for Music and Lyrics), Funny Lady (Oscar nominated for Best Song), Lucky Lady, New York, New York, Stepping Out and Chicago (Oscar nominated for Best Song). In the mid-1980’s the song “New York, New York” became the official anthem of New York City. At the time of the unfortunate death of Mr. Ebb, Kander and Ebb had several projects in different stages of completion waiting in the wings including The Visit, All About Us (a musical adaptation of Thornton Wilder play The Skin Of Our Teeth), Curtains and The Scottsboro Boys.
