Grammy, Emmy, Tony-winning and multi Oscar-nominated composer-lyricist Marc Shaiman married Lieutenant Commander Louis Mirabal March 26. The two were wed in New Jersey following Mirabal’s retirement ceremony, honoring his 20 years of service.
During the ceremony, Tony winner Nathan Lane read “Old Glory.” Other guests included The Visit producer Tom Kirdahy, who officiated the wedding, as well as Bette Midler, Whoopi Goldberg and Patti LuPone.

Incredibly honored to have spent the morning at the retirement ceremony of Lieutenant Commander Louis Mirabal (he's the handsome one on the left). We were so surprisingly moved by the flag pass off, a slow ballet of salutes and respect, performed while Nathan Lane read Old Glory, with a backing score from American President by @marc_shaiman. There was also Patti saluting the color guard when she walked in, Bette cutting the receiving line, & Jenifer Lewis riffing out the National Anthem. I'd venture to say this VFW hall had never seen anything like it. Then at the very end of that ceremony....
Shaiman’s musicals include Hairspray, Catch Me If You Can and the Broadway-bound Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, as well as the NBC TV musical series Smash.
