"Marvin dearest, your spirit is still sitting on my living room sofa
As we discuss how we are going to develop the Liberace musical...I remember your talk with Roger O. Hirson who did wind up writing us a terrific book and telling him the book needed
More "MILK"... you would be thrilled to know Liberace's struggle
as a Gay man in early Hollywood and Las Vegas is well represented in COURTROOM CARAMBA, and GEORGE, POUR
THE CHAMPAGNE...I know you would be thrilled to know the show is moving in the right direction! Had you been here, you would have written a brilliant Broadway score! We all miss you
So much, and you left us too soon!
Your music was you, and you were your music that will live on

"When I began writing songs, I wrote Mr. Hamlisch. Firstly, I was amazed he wrote back to me with words of encouragement and hope for my efforts. I've treasured his letter and taken encouragement from it when things get rough. He remains my giant of kindness."
