Rupert Holmes

Rupert Holmes, born February 24, 1947, has worked as a composer, singer, songwriter, playwright, and author. After receiving his education from the Manhattan School of Music, he began recording his own music. His 1974 album Widescreen was a hit and Barbara Streisand used some of the songs in her movie A Star is Born. Holmes went on to write songs for five more Streisand albums and had multiple singles on the Billboard Hot 100. In 1985, he wrote the musical The Mystery of Edwin Drood. This musical was loosely based on a Charles Dickens novel and won multiple Tony Awards, among other honors. This show was special because every night, audiences would vote on what character they suspected was the murderer, so different audiences got to experience different endings. Some of his other successful theater works include Say Goodnight, Gracie, Curtains, Swango, The Picture of Dorian Gray, The Nutty Professor, and now, All Things Equal. Full bio: rupertholmes.com
