Mark ("Moose") Charlap (born December 19, 1928; died April 18, 1974) was a Broadway composer best known for "Peter Pan" (1954), for which Carolyn Leigh did the lyrics. The idea to do the show came from Jerome Robbins, who planned to have a few songs by Charlap and Leigh. However, the show evolved into a full blown musical, with additional songs by Jule Styne and Betty Comden and Adolph Green. It starred Mary Martin as Peter Pan and Cyril Ritchard as Captain Hook.
