JOHN KANDER (Music) & FRED EBB (Lyrics). The John Kander and Fred Ebb collaboration of four decades has created what many would consider Broadway standards and contemporary classics.

Followed by: Cabaret (Tony Award music and lyrics), The Happy Time, Zorba, 70 Girls 70, Chicago, The Act, Woman of the Year (Tony Award music and lyrics), The Rink, Kiss of the Spider Woman (Tony Award music and lyrics) and Steel Pier. Their collaboration also transferred itself to movies and television as they wrote original material for the Academy Awards, “Liza with a Z” and HBO’s Liza Minnelli’s “Steppin Out” (both Emmy winners), “Baryshnikov on Broadway”, “Goldie and Liza Together”, “Funny Lady”, “Lucky Lady”, “New York, New York”, “Steppin Out”, and “Chicago”, the movie. In 1985 the song “New York, New York” became the official anthem of New York City. At the time of the unfortunate death of Mr. Ebb in 2004, Kander and Ebb had several projects in different stages of completion waiting in the wings, including: Tony nominated Curtains which played at the Al Hirschfeld Theater on Broadway in 2007, twelve-time Tony nominated The Scottsboro Boys which opened on Broadway in 2010, All About Us (an adaptation of Thornton Wilders “The Skin of our Teeth”) and The Visit which had a successful run at the Goodman Theater in Chicago and The Signature Theatre in Fairfax, VA starring Chita Rivera.
