Stephen Witkin joined us again to talk about his career writing the book for various musicals, and shared three songs resulting from his writing.
We talked about:
- The difference between “On Broadway” and “Off Broadway”
- Prom Queens Unchained available from Samuel French
- different sub-genres in musicals
- the nature of collaboration between book writer, lyricist, and composer
- what’s an “I Want” song?
- what the heck is underscoring?
Download the lyrics for the songs.
It was also our very own Bruce’s birthday! Happy birthday Bruce!
