Actor, Producer and Writer

Howard Lindsay (March 29, 1889 - February 11, 1968) was an American theatrical producer, playwright, librettist, director and actor. He is best known for his writing work as part of the collaboration of Lindsay and Crouse, and for his performance, with his wife Dorothy Stickney, in the long-running play Life with Father. Lindsay was born as Herman Nelke in Waterford, New York, and graduated from Boston Latin School in 1907. The 1957 Rodgers and Hammerstein television musical, Cinderella, recently revived by PBS, featured Lindsay and Stickney playing the roles of the King and Queen, one of the few times a Lindsay performance has been captured on film. Together with Russel Crouse, Lindsay won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for the 1946 play State of the Union, which was adapted into a film directed by Frank Capra two years later. In 1960, the team won the Tony Award for Best Musical for The Sound of Music. They also collaborated on Happy Hunting and Mr. President.
