- Mark Charlap
Mark ("Moose") Charlap (born
December 19, 1928; died July 8, 1974) was a Jewish-AmericanBroadway composer. Born Morris Isaac Charlip in Philadelphia, he was best known for "Peter Pan" (1954), for which Carolyn Leighwrote 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 Styneand Betty Comdenand Adolph Green. It starred Mary Martinas Peter Panand Cyril Ritchardas 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.
