Hugh Wheeler (1912-1987) won three Tony Awards, for Candide, A Little Night Music and Sweeney Todd. He also wrote the libretto for the revival of Irene and is the author of the plays Big Fish, Little Fish; Look, We’ve Come Through; We Have Always Lived in the Castle; and additional material for the musical Pacific Overtures. For film, he wrote the screenplays for Travels With My Aunt, Something for Everyone, A Little Night Music and Nijinsky. For 20-odd years he wrote mysteries under the pseudonyms Patrick Quentin and Q. Patrick, including Puzzle For Fools, Puzzle For Players, Puzzle For Puppets, Puzzle For Wantons and Puzzle For Friends. Four of his novels have been transformed into films: Black Widow, Man in the Net, The Green-Eyed Monster and The Man With Two Wives. Mr. Wheeler also wrote an adaptation of the Kurt Weill opera Silverlake, which was directed by Hal Prince at the New York City Opera.
