Biography
Ken Harper was the producer of the popular Broadway musical The Wiz. Born in New York, Harper became a radio disc jockey in the army. In the late 1960's and early 1970's he worked for radio station WPIX, New York, and later left his job to begin a full time fund raising effort for THE WIZ. This black version of the L. Frank Baum story won seven Tony awards in 1975 including best musical. The show ran for over 1600 performances and was also produced as a film. Harper died in 1988 without finding financial support for his second musical production entitled BAMBOO.
