FRANK EVANS, Award-Winning Lyricist, Librettist, and Artistic Director of Manhattan Musical Theatre Lab, Dies at 70FRANK EVANS, Award-Winning Lyricist, Librettist, and Artistic Director of Manhattan Musical Theatre Lab, Dies at 70
by Stephen Hanks - Jan 2, 2017

As a musical theater librettist, lyricist and lifelong connoisseur of Broadway and Hollywood musicals, Frank Evans would have been extremely sad to learn about the passing of screen legend Debbie Reynolds on December 28. But given his sense of humor and ability for self-deprecation, Evans might have also gotten a perverse kick out of knowing he died on the same day as one of his film favorites. Franklin G. Evans, 70, died last Wednesday evening at Methodist Hospital in Park Slope, Brooklyn, due to complications from multiple strokes that ravaged his brain over the last couple of months of 2016. Evans, who also suffered from Parkinson's-related dementia and diabetes, had spent the last year rehabilitating from a serious concussion sustained last December. (more...)
