Marvin Hamlisch's credits are staggering. His shining achievement may be his brilliant score for the Broadway hit A Chorus Line , which endures as one of the most thrilling collections of songs ever written for the stage. So much of Hamlisch's creative musical output has been lauded that he's one of only 10 people to win an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. That's known as an EGOT (not to mention a Pultizer and two Golden Globes). Take THAT, Randy Newman! For An Intimate Evening With Marvin Hamlisch , you may not get to first base with the legend, but you will be able to see the composer of “Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows,” “The Way We Were” and about a billion others in the chummy confines of UCLA's Freud Playhouse. Freud Playhouse, Macgowan Hall, UCLA; Wstwd.; Mon., March 22, 8 p.m.; $50. (310) 825-2101. –L.M. â€¨
