5 On Friday - Farewell Marvin

June 2, 1944 – August 6, 2012

Our friend Travis of Trav's Thoughts invented the Five on Friday meme. To participate, sign in on his site and then share your musical selections for the week
This week brought the news that we had lost one of our great Broadway and movie composers with the death of Marvin Hamlisch.  This week's 5 are dedicated to this great talent.

While not his greatest hit, They're Playing Our Song meant one of the best theater nights of my life if only for those Arnaz legs coming across the banquet to the uproar from the audience.

Redford and Newman with a little larceny for The Sting

Redford rich and beautiful - Streisand not quite as rich or beautiful - One great song for The Way Were

Even Baryshnikov had to dance to "ONE"

And from again from Chorus Line in both the balcony and mezzanine a little T & A - "Dance 10 Looks 3"
