There must be tons of photos.. create a then and now with short bios and maybe some art work and music segments. If we price it right, this could be a nice fundraiser for the school.

Maybe I can audition for "Doc" ! ...."Mind ? I have no mind; I'm the village idiot.."

I saw the original on broadway . Standing room only was afforded us( attending M&A , being an art student , theaters allowed us to attend for free) it was wonderful !

Do you have to be 25 on paper or do you just have to look 25? 😂😭😂😭

Crap! They aren’t looking for anybody’s!

They’ve cast him apparently

i went to music and art

My fave musical!

It never ceases to amaze me the incredible impact LaGuardia alums have had on the culture on this planet. Mr. Bochco is a perfect example. Proud to have walked the same halls at M&A that he did. Music and Art Proud Class of 1975.🎼🎨

He went on to graduate from Carnegie Tech (Carnegie Mellon), my alma mater. He was very loyal to his school and to fellow alumni.

Sorry to hear. He was a real credit to Music and Art.

RIP. I was class of '65.

We were in chorus together. RIP💕 Joan ‘61

Rest is peace ✨
