Howard Lindsay (March 29, 1889 - February 11, 1968) was a Broadway producer, playwright, librettist, director and actor. Born in Waterford, New York, he is best known for his writing work as part of the collaboration of Lindsay and Crouse, and for his performance, with his wife Dorothy Stickney, in the long-running play Life with Father.
The 1957 Rodgers and Hammerstein television musical, Cinderella, recently revived by PBS, featured Crouse and Stickney playing the roles of the King and Queen, one of the few times a Lindsay performance has been captured on film.
Together with co-writer Russel Crouse, Lindsay won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for the 1946 play State of the Union, which was adapted into a film directed by Frank Capra two years later. In 1960, the team won a Tony Award for Best Musical for The Sound of Music.
