He shared a Pulitzer Prize for his work on the musical <em>Fiorello! </em>and a Tony Award for <em>Fiddler On The Roof</em>. But he says a career in the theater means writing some songs that, for whatever reason, don't make the show.<p>"Sometimes, the song was changed because a scene was changed and it no longer accommodated the song," Harnick says.
