Sam Crothers

Sam Crothers was a staff member of The Producer Circle Company, a producing group formed by Martin Richards, Mary Lea Johnson, Robert Fryer and James Cresson. Eventually, he became managerial partner of the company. With the Producer Circle Co., he worked on On the Twentieth Century, Goodbye Fidel, Roza and Sweet Smell of Success. Other credits included Grind, Mayor, The Life and The Will Rogers Follies.

Foxfire was a rare Broadway credit on his resume when he was not paired with Richards. The 1982 play, starring Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy, ran for 213 performances.

He was also an executive producer on the film "Chicago."

Mr. Crothers attended Arts High School in Newark, NJ. He served in the United States Navy from 1957 to 1960 as a medical corpsman. He then graduated from Rutgers University with a B.A. in English in 1962, and went on to work in the obituary department of The New York Times.

Philanthropically, Mr. Crothers was executive producer of The Producer Circle’s annual Red Ball, which benefited both the Mary Lea Johnson Richards Institute for Organ Transplantation, as well as the New York Center for Children, New York City’s leading non-profit center for abused children.
