The Groovy List is joining this Book Club



The Groovy List is a weekly roundup of groovy gay pop culture:

1) Groovy Guy: Harvey Schmidt
The composer, who died Wednesday at age 88, was best known for composing the music (with lyricist Tom Jones) for the longest-running musical in history, The Fantasticks, which ran off-Broadway for 42 years (1960-2002) and 17,162 performances. His other musicals with Jones include 110 in the Shade (1963), I Do! I Do! (1966), Celebration (1969), Philemon (1975), Colette Collage (1983), Grover's Corners (1987), Mirette (1996) and Roadside (2001) as well as a 1997 revue of their work, The Show Goes On. In 1992, both Schmidt and Jones received Special Tony Awards for The Fantasticks.

Below you can watch Schmidt in a 1976 interview with Jones and Norman Lloyd (who directed a filmed version of their off-Broadway show, Philemon, for a 1976 episode of PBS's Hollywood Television Theatre), in a 1984 interview with Jones and Rian Keating, and in a 1992 episode of A&E Revue with Jerry Orbach and host Robert Klein.
