MANHASSET, N.Y., Dec 23, 2005 (UPI via COMTEX) -- The producer of Broadway's revival of "Sweeny Todd," Ted Tulchin, has died at North Shore Hospital in Manhasset, N.Y. He was 79.
The Floral Park, N.Y., resident died Monday of heart failure, the New York Times reported Friday.
"Sweeny Todd" was Tulchin's most recent production -- it opened Nov. 3 on Broadway at the Eugene O'Neill Theater. Among his other Broadway credits were the drama "Vincent in Brixton" and two comedies -- "Fortune's Fool" and Elaine May's "Taller Than a Dwarf."
On London's West End, he produced "Guys and Dolls," the Times said.
Tulchin founded STA International, which provides credit management and insurance, collections and accounts receivable, via subsidiaries and affiliates. Tulchin was also the founder and longtime chairman of Continental Bank in Garden City, N.Y.
He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Pat Reyburn Tulchin, two sons, a daughter, a brother and three grandchildren.
