"Michael Korie, the Tony-nominated "Grey Gardens" lyricist, leads a visitor to a room in the Teaneck home where he grew up... This place, the Indicks' home since 1963, and these parents had a profound influence on Korie (his middle name, which he uses professionally), a successful lyricist who has also done several operas.... By the time Korie got to Teaneck High School -- where he was rehearsal accompanist for shows like "Oklahoma" -- he was going on his own, and with friends, to see New York shows."
