Producer Craig Zadan, known for his TV and film adaptations of stage musicals such as "The Sound of Music" and "Jesus Christ Superstar" and for recent broadcasts of the Academy Awards, passed away at the age of 69, NBC announced on Tuesday.

The credits from Zadan include the Oscar-winning 2002 edition of "Chicago", as well as the TV movie "Cinderella" from 1997 with Brandy and Whitney Houston. With his creative partner Neil Meron, Zadan helped to launch the revival of live music productions for TV with "Peter Pan" and "The Wiz," among others.

Zadan "had music and dance in his soul, and when people dance and sing, the world is a better place," tweeted Kevin Bacon, star of the film "Footloose" from 1984, which was produced by Zadan.
