Moffly Media Entertaining Conversation Series
Ridgefield Magazine Broadway and Cabaret Series
Partially Underwritten by Adam Broderick Salon and Spa and Ross Bread Shoppe & Coffee House
A Daniel C. Levine Production
It’s an evening with one of the most prolific Broadway composers of our time- as he’s interviewed by the Director of Musical Theatre for ASCAP, Michael Kerker, in an “inside the actors studio” style event. Interwoven throughout the evening will be performances by the stars of Schwartz’ Broadway hit musical Wicked: Lindsay Mendez who played Elphaba, Kara Lindsay who played Glinda, and Derek Klena who played Fiyero. Wicked musical director, Bryan Perri will accompany the performers. In addition to Wicked, which has recently surpassed $1billion in ticket sales and has surpassed Rent as the 10th longest running show in Broadway history, Schwartz has written such hit musicals as “Godspell”, and “Pippin”, among others, and has been awarded multiple Oscars, Grammys, Tonys, Drama Desk Awards and a Golden Globe. Simply put, Stephen Schwartz will surely go down in history as the premier American musical theater composer of our time. Produced by Daniel C. Levine (Les Miserables, Chicago, Mamma Mia!).
