Chicago Lyricist Dies. [13 Sep 2004|01:28pm]

NEW YORK (AP) - Fred Ebb, who wrote the lyrics for such hit Broadway musicals as ``Chicago'' and ``Cabaret'' as well as the big-city anthem ``New York, New York,'' has died of a heart attack.

Ebb died Saturday at his home, said David McKeown, an assistant to composer John Kander, Ebb's longtime collaborator. The lyricist was believed to be 76, although Ebb always was ``sweetly vague'' about his age, said director Scott Ellis, who worked with him on several shows.

With Kander, Ebb wrote the scores for 11 Broadway musicals, many of them for such leading ladies as Gwen Verdon, Chita Rivera, Liza Minnelli and Lauren Bacall. Minnelli was a particular favorite of the songwriting team, and over the years, the duo created special material for the performer's solo appearances on Broadway and on television specials.

Among the other musicals Kander and Ebb wrote during their four decades of collaboration were ``Kiss of the Spider Woman'' (1993), ``The Rink'' (1984), ``Woman of the Year'' (1981) and ``Zorba'' (1968).

``New York, New York'' was written for the 1977 Martin Scorcese film of the same name, which starred Minnelli and Robert De Niro. The song became a standard, particularly after it was recorded by Frank Sinatra.

Together, the songwriting team won Tony Awards for their scores of ``Cabaret,'' ``Woman of the Year'' and ``Kiss of the Spider Woman.'' In addition, the 2002 film version of ``Chicago,'' directed by Rob Marshall, won the Academy Award for best picture.

Born in New York, Ebb went to school at both New York University and Columbia, where he received a master' degree in English literature. The lyricist got his start in the theater writing for revues, one of which, ``From A to Z,'' had a short run on Broadway in 1960.

Ebb was brought together with Kander in the 1960s by music publisher Tommy Valando and one of their first collaborations, the song ``My Coloring Book,'' was recorded by Barbra Streisand.

The team was hired by producer Harold Prince and veteran director George Abbott to write the score for ``Flora, the Red Menace,'' starring a 19-year-old Minnelli. The show, which opened on Broadway in 1965, was not a success, but Kander and Ebb were signed to do Prince's next musical, a show based on Christopher Isherwood's ``Berlin Stories'' and the play ``I Am a Camera.''

Called ``Cabaret,'' it opened in November 1966 and ran for 1,165 performances, immediately establishing Kander and Ebb as musical-theater songwriters to watch. The production, set in pre-World War II Germany, featured a huge mirror which reflected back into the audience and featured a sexually provocative master of ceremonies, played by Joel Grey, who taunted and teased the audience in song.

``Cabaret'' has been revived twice on Broadway - in 1987 with Grey repeating his role as the lascivious master of ceremonies and again in 1998 by the Roundabout Theatre Company in an environmentally staged production which ran until early this year.

The revival of ``Chicago,'' which opened on Broadway in 1996, also has outlasted the original. The first production, starring Verdon and Rivera and directed by Bob Fosse, opened on Broadway in 1975 and, despite a two-year run, was overshadowed by another hit show of that year, ``A Chorus Line.''

But ``Chicago,'' a sardonic, cynical take on murder and mayhem in the 1920s, came into its own with the 1996 revival, which featured Ann Reinking and Bebe Neuwirth. It is still running at the Ambassador Theatre, having recently passed performance number 3,250.

The team's last Broadway collaboration, an original musical called ``Steel Pier'' had a short run in 1997. They also did a musical version of ``The Visit,'' starring Chita Rivera, at Chicago's Goodman Theatre in 2001, but a New York engagement never materialized.

At the time of Ebb's death, the team was working on several projects including revising ``Over and Over,'' a musical version of Thornton Wilder's classic ``The Skin of Our Teeth,'' and a murder-mystery musical called ``Curtains.''

Funeral services will be Tuesday.

There were no immediate survivors.

Hey Everyone!,
Well.. the first time I saw Chicago is when I stayed home from school one day. It was on TV and I decided to watch it because I heard it was a good movie. I absolutely fell in love with it! And I watched it later on that same day. My favourite character has probably got to be Velma Kelly. She's the bitch of the movie but I love her! My favourite song/scene is the Cell Block Tango. That was amazing. Anyways, I decided to share two of my Chicago icons. They're not very good but oh well. If you want them just comment & credit, thanks! =)
