The prolific producer Craig Zadan is known for his touch with stage, TV and film musicals, He was passed away at 69. Zadan passed away on Monday night at his Hollywood Hills home of complications from a recent shoulder replacement surgery. “We are stunned that the man behind so many incredible films, theatre, and television productions – several of them joyous musicals – was taken away so suddenly,” Greenblatt said.
“Craig’s distinguished career as a passionate and consummate producer is eclipsed only by his genuine love for the thousands of actors, directors, writers, musicians, designers, and technicians he worked with over the years. His absence will be felt in our hearts and throughout our business,” Greenblatt added. Zadan had a long producing partnership with Neil Meron in Storyline Entertainment, which was recently renamed Zadan/Meron Productions.
