b. 3 Apr 1919, NEW YORK, NY, USA, d. 30 March 1981, NY, USA. After learning history at NY University, Edwards trained American background at Wayne Monroe SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL. He had various other passions and performed as an professional, including showing up in Harold Rome’s Broadway revue Pins And Fine needles, which ran using a changing ensemble from 1937-40. He also performed piano with observed artists from the worlds of pop and jazz. He composed some music, including ‘Broken-Hearted Melody’ (with Hal David), ‘Find You In Sept’ (Sid Wayne), and ‘Great, Great’ (Ben Raleigh). Over time, Edwards had proved helpful extensively on the project that could gather all his regions of interest. This is the reserve for what ultimately became the Broadway present, 1776 (1969). He had taken the reserve through many drafts and likewise constructed the music and composed the lyrics from the music. For the ultimate draft from the present, Edwards is at cooperation with Peter Rock, who was simply thereafter often acknowledged with the reserve. The display was an enormous success, working for a lot more than 1, 200 shows and earning a Tony Award as Greatest Musical, in addition to Tony honours for Best Helping Professional (Ronald Holgate) and Greatest Movie director (Peter Hunt). A 1970 London creation was unsuccessful, probably because the subject material, the breaking from Britain of colonists and their development of america of America, was quintessentially American. Revivals in america in 1991 and on Broadway in 1997 demonstrated the present’s long lasting quality, which stands tightly upon its well-structured reserve, even more a play with music when compared to a musical, and continues to be testimony to Edwards’ eyesight and determination. Rock also composed the screenplay for the 1972 film edition of 1776, that was aimed by Hunt.
