NEW YORK (AP) - Jeffrey Ash, a theatrical advertising executive who later became a successful producer for shows on Broadway, off-Broadway and in London’s West End, has died. He was 65.

Publicist Shirley Herz said Monday that Ash died Aug. 8 at his home in Manhattan. Although no cause of death was immediately known, Ash had long suffered from an autoimmune disorder.

As an ad man, Ash helped represent such original Broadway shows as “A Little Night Music,” “Pippin,” “Pacific Overtures,” “Annie,” “Evita,” “Glengarry Glen Ross,” “Nine,” “La Cage Aux Folles” (lah-KAJ’-oh-fahl) and “M Butterfly.”

As a producer, he found success with the off-Broadway hit “Other People’s Money” in 1989. He went on to produce the 2002 Broadway revival of “The Crucible” and the revival of “Finian’s Rainbow” in 2009, among many others.
