Veteran composer Marvin Hamlisch cowrote one of Broadway's quintessential show tunes, A Chorus Line's "One."
And, like the song he bequeathed to aspiring performers everywhere, he was indeed a singular sensation.
Hamlisch died Monday in Los Angeles after a brief illness. He was 68.
The composer's death was confirmed to E! News by a family spokesman, who did not provide additional details.
