A Little Bit of Broadway
December 12, 2010
Stephen Schwartz is the only songwriter with three Broadway shows running more than 1,900 performances (Pippin, The Magic Show and Wicked). In addition, Godspell had an initial off-Braodway/Broadway combined run of 2,600 performances. He is also the lyricist (and Oscar winner) for animated musicals Pocahontas, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Prince of Egpyt, and Enchanted.
Today we enjoy his young-man-on-a-quest musical, Pippin.

We also hear Stephanie Mills performing "Ain't It Good" from one of Schwartz's lesser-known musicals "Children of Eden.
