Martin Charnin

Martin Charnin is celebrating his 56th year in the entertainment industry, which began in 1957 when he created the role of Big Deal, (one of Jerome Robbins' authentic juvenile delinquents) in the original company of West Side Story. He played the role for exactly 1000 performances. Since then he has been involved in over 135 theatrical, television, film, and night club productions as a director, producer, composer, or lyricist. He is one of the dozen people who have won Emmys, Tonys, and Grammys, and the Peabody Award for Broadcasting, but he has yet to win an Oscar. This might change in 2014, when the 3rd film version of his iconic musical Annie, is released by Sony pictures.
