Mark Charlap


Mark Charlap

Mark ("Moose") Charlap (born December 19, 1928; died July 8, 1974) was a Jewish-American Broadway composer. Born Morris Isaac Charlip in Philadelphia, he was best known for "Peter Pan" (1954), for which Carolyn Leigh wrote the lyrics. The idea to do the show came from Jerome Robbins, who planned to have a few songs by Charlap and Leigh. However, the show evolved into a full blown musical, with additional songs by Jule Styne and Betty Comden and Adolph Green. It starred Mary Martin as Peter Pan and Cyril Ritchard as Captain Hook. Moose was the father of Bill Charlap, a well-known jazz pianist - as well as Tom Charlap - a bass player who has played with numerous productions of the show.
