Meehan, Thomas

Thomas Meehan won the 2003 Tony Award co-writing the book for HAIRSPRAY as well as the 2001 Tony Award for co-writing the book for THE PRODUCERS. He received his first Tony Award in 1977 for writing the book of ANNIE, his first Broadway show, and has since written the books for the musicals I REMEMBER MAMA, AIN'T BROADWAY GRAND, and DADDY WARBUCKS. In addition, he is a long-time contributor of humor to The New Yorker, an Emmy-award winning writer of television comedy, and a collaborator on a number of screenplays, including Mel Brooks' Space Balls and To Be Or Not To Be. He and his wife Carolyn divide their time between a home in Newton, Connecticut and an apartment in Greenwich Village, near which, on Hudson Street, she owns and presides over the long-running and near-legendary children's store, Peanut Butter & Jane.
