George Furth, writer and actor, has died at age 75. Obituary by Bruce Weber in The New York Times.

In his best-known works, however, he was overshadowed by his writing partner, Mr. Sondheim, with whom he wrote three shows: two musicals, “Company” and “Merrily We Roll Along”; and a nonmusical mystery, “Getting Away With Murder.” “Merrily We Roll Along” and “Getting Away With Murder” were famous failures, though “Merrily,” which closed after 16 performances in 1981, would be revised more than once and become a favorite among Sondheim devotees.
