Adolph Green, Broadway
Playwright, Dies at 87

Adolph Green, the playwright, performer and lyricist who in a six-decade collaboration with Betty Comden was co-author of such hit Broadway musicals as “On the Town,” “Wonderful Town” and “Bells Are Ringing” and the screenplays for “Singin’ in the Rain” and “The Band Wagon,” died today at his home in Manhattan. He was 87.

In honor of Green, of the music of New York City, and of Mrs. Adolph Green, this site’s music is now a piano rendition by Doug McKenzie of “Some Other Time.”
