Theater pros are mourning Harvey Sabinson — a former longtime executive director of the Broadway League who received a lifetime achievement Tony in 1995 — after he died Thursday at 94.
The veteran press agent worked with clients including Gilbert Cates and David Merrick. He was also associated with productions of 10 Neil Simon plays, as well as “Finian’s Rainbow,” “Guys and Dolls,” “Gypsy,” “Hello, Dolly!” and “Oliver!”
Sabinson died of natural causes at home in Sarasota, Fla., his rep said.
He was also principal in the firm Solters and Sabinson, which repped Barbra Streisand, Carol Channing, Hume Cronyn, Jessica Tandy and Jason Robards, as well as Caesars Palace and the Plaza, plus US tours by The Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
He published a memoir “Darling, You Were Wonderful,” in 1977.
