Concord Theatricals celebrates Marvin Hamlisch as the only other person in history, after Richard Rodgers, who has won the PEGOT (Pulitzer, Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony). Author Robin Pomatto writes:
Right off the bat, this needs to be said: Marvin Hamlisch attended Juilliard when he was six years old.
Take all the time you need with that fact because from there on out, it only gets more impressive.
At 16, he was at the piano accompanying Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli at star-studded dinner parties. Before he was 21, he had written the bouncy and infectiously catchy “Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows” for Lesley Gore, earning him a spot in Billboard’s Top 100. He was a man of prodigious musical gifts, possessed of a 90-piece-brass-band personality. He dominated at the 1974 Oscars, strolling out of that ceremony with three statues under his arm before he turned 30.
