Kermit Bloomgarden

Legit Icons of the Century

After toiling as general manager for Lillian Hellman’s favorite producer, Herman Shumlin, Bloomgarden — known for his impeccable taste — proceeded to bring Arthur Miller’s “Death of a Salesman” and “The Crucible,” as well as “The Diary of Anne Frank” to the stage.

Shortly before his death in 1976, the producer scored with “Hot L Baltimore” and “Equus.” By then, he had already proven himself equally adept at producing top-drawer musicals like “The Music Man” and “The Most Happy Fella.”
