Williamson Music has landed an administration deal with Charles Strouse, the Tony, Grammy and Emmy winning composer of such musical productions as "Annie," "Bye Bye Birdie," "Applause" and "Golden Boy." The publisher will be representing Strouse's share of scores and compositions.

Williamson, a division of the Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization, will tap into the parent company's resources to work the catalog. The worldwide deal, effective immediately, includes Strouse's theater and film scores but does not include his theme song for the classic TV series "All in the Family."

"Charles' music covers a breathtaking array of mood and feeling," says Maxyne Lang, president of Williamson. Among his memorable songs are "Put on a Happy Face" (lyrics by Fred Tobias) and "Tomorrow" (lyrics by Martin Charnin).

In another recent deal, Williamson is now administering the scores of Grammy-winning composer Henry Krieger from many of his Broadway musicals, including the Tony-winning "The Tap Dance Kid" (lyrics by Robert Lorick) and Tony nominated "Side Show" (lyrics by Bill Russell).

Krieger, who composed music for the Broadway hit "Dreamgirls," also wrote four songs for the movie of the same name. Three of the four songs are nominated for the 2007 Academy Award for best song: "Listen" (additional music by Scott Cutler, lyrics by Anne Previn and Beyonce), "Love You I Do" (lyrics by Siedah Garrett) and "Patience" (lyrics by Willie Reale). The fourth song is "A Perfect World" (lyrics by Garrett). "Listen" is also on Beyonce's Grammy-winning "B-Day" album.

Williamson is representing Krieger's interest in the songs from the film, but not the scores to the Broadway musical version of "Dreamgirls."
