Elizabeth Swados, whose transcendent pan-cultural musical Runaways inspired generations of theater artists well beyond its 1978 Broadway run, died Tuesday in Manhattan. She was 64 and had recently undergone surgery for esophageal cancer, her wife, Roz Lichter, confirmed. Runaways came out of the fevered artistic cauldron that was Joseph Papp’s Public Theater in the 1970’s. Swados, like Michael Bennett with A Chorus Line, was one of the young, irrepressible creators Papp took under his wing.
