Marc Shaiman, Leonard Bernstein, Julie Harris, James Whitmore*, James Earl Jones, Lily Tomlin, John Kander and Fred Ebb, all have a very particular thing in common. It’s really not a very bad thing to have, although I’m willing to bet that each of them they wishes (or would wish, if they were still alive) that it were otherwise.
* I refer to James Allen Whitmore, Jr., who was in Tora! Tora! Tora! and Planet of the Apes, not his son James Allen Whitmore III, who confusingly uses the name James Whitmore, Jr., and is probably best known from his role in Baa Baa Black Sheep
