Frank Goodman, the Broadway press agent who created fanfare for Gypsy, Irma La Douce, The Night of the Iguana and many shows by Rodgers and Hammerstein over a five-decade career, died at the NYU Medical Center on Feb. 3, 2006, his daughter Barbara Goodman said. He was 89. Mr. Goodman began his career with the Federal Theatre Project in the 1930s, working with Orson Welles and John Housman. He later worked under Richard Maney, the publicist famed for his independent nature, flair for the dramatic and the literary bent of his press releases. With Maney, he chased publicity for such shows as Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and Come Back, Little Sheba.
