Scott Salmon was the director and choreographer of Radio City Music Hall's Christmas and Easter shows since 1990 and a Tony Award nominee.
Mr. Salmon won critical acclaim and a Tony nomination for his choreography of the 1983 Broadway musical La Cage aux Folles.
He began his association with Radio City Music Hall in 1990, when he was asked to revive the Music Hall's Easter show, which had not been staged for 11 years. His success with that show led to his direction of the Music Hall's 1990 "Christmas Spectacular" as well. In his review of the 1992 Easter show in The New York Times, Stephen Holden called it "an object lesson in how to stage a seasonal pageant that never flags."
Mr. Salmon received an Emmy nomination in 1985 for his choreography of the "The 57th Annual Academy Awards Show." He also did the choreography for Grammy Awards productions, three Steve Martin specials, the Barbara Mandrell series, and the Miss America Pageant.
Salmon died in a car accident in 1993 at the age of 50.
