Remembering Marvin Hamlisch

Famed composer Marvin Hamlisch passed away this week at 68. He won every award there was, Grammys, Oscars, Emmys, and a Tony. It's hard to say what music Hamlisch was best known for — "The Way We Were," "A Chorus Line," or maybe "The Sting"? His work was beloved by millions, including the contestants of BROADWAY OR BUST.
