Jerry Herman, lyricist who wrote Hello, Dolly and Mame, age 88 of pulmonary complications.

Not just a lyricist, he was a composer/lyricist who also wrote the score for La Cage aux Folles, the only Broadway musical win to the Best Musical Tony Award three times (One for Best Musical, two for Best Revival of a Musical). Rest in Peace, Jerry.

Wrong link.

Oops, sorry. I fixed the original post. Hate sites that just put articles one after another like that, and when you scroll too far it acts like you clicked the other link.
