Fred Ebb (1928 - 2004)

Fred Ebb was a musical theatre lyricist best known for his collaborations with composer John Kander, especially their songs for Cabaret, Chicago, Kiss of the Spider Woman. They wrote the song "New York, New York" as well as a number of songs that were very important in the careers of Barbara Streisand and Liza Minelli.

Ebb is interred in a mausoleum in Section 20 (lot 43458) on the south edge of Sylvan Water. He shares the mausoleum with Edwin Aldridge (1929-1997) and Martin Cohen (1926-1995). I'm not entirely certain what the relationship between the three was, but Aldridge stage managed a number of Kander/Ebb shows and his obit in the NY Times lists Ebb as his surviving friend.
