Merkin Concert Hall’s Broadway Playhouse series introduces kids to the masterpieces of American Musical Theater through mini-musicals, medleys, sing-alongs and games in which children participate. The 2013 series concludes with Stephen Schwartz, one of only two composer/lyricists to have three shows run longer than 1,500 performances on Broadway: Wicked, Godspell and Pippin. Schwartz was also involved in Disney’s classics Pocahontas and The Hunchback of Notre Dame and wrote the score for Dreamworks’ Prince of Egypt. This concert will “Defy Gravity” and has lots of “Magic to Do” as we celebrate one of Broadway’s greatest living composers/lyricists. For ages 4-11.
