|I also thought of the 1952 musical and wondered if ''Wish You Were Here'' were being revived with a full-sized swimming pool (like the original).
Any other Harold Rome fans? He seems so overlooked. He made his Broadway debut with ''Pins and Needles,'' and through the 1950s and 1960s, wrote ''Wish You Were Here,'' ''Fanny,'' ''Destry Rides Again'' and ''I Can Get It for You Wholesale.'' The stars of his shows included Jack Cassidy, Walter Slezak, Dolores Gray, Andy Griffith and Barbra Streisand. And through bad luck or timing, Rome never scored a single Tony nomination.
However, in 1991, the Drama Desk gave Rome a special award, and that same year, he was inducted into the American Theatre Hall of Fame.
