Happy birthday to Sir Tim Rice! He has written the lyrics for stage productions of “Evita” “Jesus Christ Superstar,” “The Lion King” “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” I’ve met him many times and he is extremely nice! Tim wrote the lyrics for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 2011 stage version of “the Wizard of Oz,” so hopefully that will come to the United States as I am sure it’s amazing!
Also born today: actress Brittany Murphy and actor Richard Burton.
