As BroadwayWorld sadly reported yesterday, award-winning Broadway actor John McMartin has passed away at the age of 86. McMartin most recently appeared on Broadway in 2014's ALL THE WAY and the 2011 revival of ANYTHING GOES.

The actor made his Broadway debut as Forrest Noble in THE CONQUERING HERO in 1961, followed by BLOOD, SWEAT AND STANLEY POOLE that same year. He created the role of Oscar in SWEET CHARITY in 1966, opposite Gwen Verdon, garnering a Tony nomination, and played the role again in the 1969 film opposite Shirley MacLaine.

He later starred in the original Broadway production of Sondheim's FOLLIES in 1971 as Benjamin Stone. His association with Sondheim continued, appearing in A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC as Frederick at the Ahmanson Theatre, Los Angeles, in 1991, and the Broadway revival of INTO THE WOODS in 2002, in the dual role of the Narrator/Mysterious Man.
