Celebrated Sondheim Collaborator Dies

George Furth who collaborated with Stephen Sondheim on legendary Broadway shows, 'Company' and 'Merrily we Roll Along' has died in Los Angeles aged 76.
He won the Tony Award for his book to Sondheims 'Company'.

A young actress with Noel coward after a dreadful opening night performance said to him 'Well, i knew my lines backwards this morning!'' Noels fast reply was ''Yes dear, and thats exactly how you said them tonight'!'

This is truly sad news - such a great writer. His book for "Company" in particular is a masterclass in dramatic writing.
