I enjoyed Kat Kramer’s fun piece on the irrepressible and multi-talented Allee Willis (Kat Tales, April 12). But there was one small goof. While the recent Broadway revival of The Color Purple did indeed win both a Tony (for Best Revival of a Musical) and a Grammy (for Best Musical Theater Album), Allee didn’t personally win either award. (Those awards don’t go to the composers and lyricists of the original score.) But Allee does have a Grammy for her contributions to the Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack, which contained her top 10 song “Neutron Dance.”
