Taylor, Deems

(1885-1966)
   Born Joseph Deems Taylor in New York, he became a critic and successful composer. His musical, The Echo (1910), won favor, and he wrote an operatic version of Peter Ibbetson for the Metropolitan Opera. His association with theatre was mostly in providing evocative incidental music for several important plays, including Liliom (1921), The Adding Machine (1922), Casanova (1923), Fashion (1924), and Beggar on Horseback (1924).
