Tony-, Grammy-, and Pulitzer Prize-winning lyricist Sheldon Harnick celebrates his birthday April 30.

Harnick, who was born in Chicago in 1924, wrote his first song for Broadway in 1952. His collaboration with composer Jerry Bock produced such classics as Fiorello (1959), which won both a Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award, and Fiddler on the Roof (1964), which won the Tony for Best Musical. Harnick is the recipient of the Pulitzer Prize, two Tonys, a Grammy Award, two New York Drama Critics Circle Awards, one platinum record, and three gold records.

The New York Gilbert and Sullivan Players will honor Harnick at their spring gala May 2 at The Players Club.
