Personal Quote:

There is a sort of theory that you should adapt bad books because they always make more successful films. Don't do masterpieces, because they'll be disappointing. I don't think that. If you take a really good book, then the potential is for a really good film. But you've got to get it right. See more »

Trivia:

In 1995, won two Tony Awards for "Sunset Boulevard:" as Best Book (Musical) with Don Black, and as Best Original Musical Score, sharing lyrics credit with Black and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber. He previously has received two Tony nominations as author of Best Play nominees: in 1971 for "The Philanthropist" and in 1987 for "Les Liaisons Dangereuses." See more »
