________________________________________________________________________

Rupert Holmes is the singer/songwriter of the megahit "Escape (The Piña Colada Song)," the only song to reach #1 on the Billboard Hotlist for two consecutive decades. A former Bergen County resident and an ardent supporter of BCP, Holmes is perhaps best known in the theater world as the first sole winner of Tony Awards for Best Book, Best Music and Best Lyrics for a single show (Drood), which also won the Tony and Drama Desk Award for Best Broadway Musical. For Drood, Holmes also received identical Drama Desk Awards, as well as the Award for Orchestrations. His comedy-drama about the life of comedian George Burns, Say Goodnight, Gracie, earned him a Tony nomination for Best Play and won the National Broadway Theatre Award for Best Play.  His stage comedy-thrillers Accomplice (Edgar Award winner) and Solitary Confinement broke existing box office records for the Kennedy Center and the Pasadena Playhouse, with both shows enjoying runs on Broadway, while Curtains (with music and lyrics by Kander and Ebb) won Holmes the Drama Desk award for Best Book of a Musical, as well as two further Tony nominations. In a unique collaboration between Holmes and The Players, the devious comedy-thriller Thumbs! was written expressly for BCP by Holmes, and had its world premiere at BCP's Little Firehouse Theatre in 2001.
