Biography of Thomas Meehan

THOMAS MEEHAN (Book) received the Tony Award for co-writing the book for THE PRODUCERS in 2001 and in 2003 for co-writing the book for HAIRSPRAY.

He received his first Tony Award in 1977 for writing the book of ANNIE, which was his first Broadway show, and has since written the books for the musicals I REMBEMBER MAMA, AIN’T BROADWAY GRAND and ANNIE WARBUCKS. In addition, he is a long-time contributor of humor to THE NEW YORKER, an Emmy-Award winning writer of television comedy, and a collaborator on a number of screenplays, including Mel Brooks’ SPACEBALLS and TO BE OR NOT TO BE.

He and his wife, Carolyn, divide their time between a home in Nantucket and an apartment in Greenwich Village, near which, on Hudson Street, she owns and presides over the long-running and near-legendary children’s store Peanut Butter & Jane. Mr. Meehan is a member of the Council of the Dramatists Guild.
