At a time when Broadway and pop music had taken separate paths, Stephen Schwartz successfully introduced the pop/rock musical sensibility of the 1970s to musical theater. After early success on Broadway with Godspell and Pippin, he reinvented himself in Hollywood, collaborating with Alan Menken on the music for 1990s Disney classics including Pocahontas and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Schwartz and Jerry Herman are the only two composers to have three shows run for more than 1,500 performances. Learn about his inspiring story and hear music spanning his entire career – including songs from Pippin, Pocahontas, The Baker's Wife and his smash hit Wicked.

All 2020-21 Kaufman Music Center performances are online, filmed in safe, socially distanced locations observing health and safety protocols, and streamed to the safety of your home.
