Composer & lyricist Stephen Schwartz

Stephen Schwartz is an Oscar, Grammy, Golden Globe and Honorary Tony award winning composer and lyricist.

His work has spanned six decades and includes Wicked, Godspell, Pippin, The Baker’s Wife, and London’s newest musical, The Prince of Egypt, which is based on the 1998 Dreamworks animated film.

Stephen also wrote the lyrics for the Disney films Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Enchanted, on which he collaborated with the composer Alan Menken.

We recorded this conversation in a dressing room at the Dominion Theatre a few days before The Prince of Egypt's opening night.
