The marquees of Broadway theatres will be dimmed March 19 at 7:45 PM for one minute in memory of composer, director and producer Mitch Leigh, who passed away March 16 at age 86.
Mr. Leigh wrote the music for Man of La Mancha, which won five 1966 Tony Awards, including Best Composer and Lyricist (Leigh and Joe Darion) and Best Musical.
“Mitch Leigh was a multi-faceted talent whether he was composing, directing, or producing for Broadway or Madison Avenue,” said Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of the Broadway League, in a recent statement. “Our thoughts go out to his family, friends, and fans of his work.”
Mr. Leigh was also nominated for a 1985 Tony Award for Best Direction of a Musical for The King and I starring Yul Brynner, and he produced the 1983 Broadway revival of Mame starring Angela Lansbury.
