Marshall Brickman

Marshall Brickman is an Academy Award winning screenwriter who has worked on such hits as Annie Hall and The Tonight Show.

After attending the University of Wisconsin-Madison, he became a member of Folk act The Tarriers in 1962, recruited by former classmate Eric Weissberg. Upon the disbanding of The Tarriers in 1965, Marshall joined The New Journeymen with John Phillips and Michelle Phillips who later had success with The Mamas & Papas. He left The New Journeymen in order to pursue a career as a writer, initially writing for television in the 1960s, including Candid Camera, The Tonight Show, The Dick Cavett Show. It was during this time that he met Woody Allen, with whom he would collaborate on several film scripts, including Sleeper, Annie Hall (which won the Best Original Screenplay Academy Award), and Manhattan.

Marshall directed several of his own scripts in the 1980s, including Simon, Lovesick, The Manhattan Project, and Sister Mary Explains it All, none of which were commercial successes. He reunited with Allen in 1993 to write Manhattan Murder Mystery.

His latest venture is the book for the hit Broadway musical Jersey Boys, written with Rick Elice.
