About

This year’s composer’s cabaret series will centre around Stephen Schwartz. With a consistent career spanning over four decades, Schwartz has cemented himself as a one of the backbone composers and lyricists of musical theatre. He has contributed lyrically and musically to many well-known show, such as Godspell, Pippin, and Wicked. Additionally, he wrote lyrics for some of Disney’s most well-known cartoon musical blockbusters, The Prince of Egypt and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

From “Popular” to “Day by Day”, there’s a number sure to wet your whistle and get your toes tapping! We hope you will join us as we celebrate one of Broadway’s masterminds.
