Marvin Hamlisch, 68, was one singular musical sensation. The famous composer earned almost every major award: Oscars, Grammys, Golden Globes, a Tony and a Pulitzer.
Hamlisch died of an unspecified illness. Perhaps best known for his work on the musical A Chorus Line and movies like The Way We Were and The Sting. The entrepreneur musician also contributed to the James Bond hit The Spy Who Loved Me.
His last work was the musical adaptation of the film The Nutty Professor that was presented in July at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center. Hamlisch was scheduled to travel to Nashville this week to see the Broadway-bound production. (AV)
