Join us! We’re kicking off a new series, “Name-Dropping Broadway,” highlighting the people who have built Broadway through the years. We start with a composer/lyricist we affectionately call “the gateway drug to musical theatre,” whose career opened with Godspell, had an 11 o’clock number at Wicked, and is still going strong. Host Sally Fuller and special guest host Madison Garrett take a look at the young beginnings of Stephen Schwartz’s career through the lens of his most “extraordinary” piece- Pippin. Check out the show notes on for bonus videos and general theatre nerdery!
