I just received word that a colleague from my days at the 13th Street Rep has passed away, Robert Kreis, who directed countless plays and musicals for many years at the Rep.
Bob and I worked together on the children's play RUMPLE WHO and in a number of staged readings. I always liked Bob, a nice man, an expert in all things music and classic movies, which we always discussed at great length. He was also a dear friend of Stanley Harrison and a big supporter of the projects that Stanley and I worked on. I remember how much he loved THE CAT AND THE MOON.
Bob was a composer and conductor and worked on revivals of CAMELOT and MY FAIR LADY. He always regaled me with stories about Rex Harrison and Richard Burton. All very funny.
Bob, I hope you're at peace now.
