Defying Gravity-The Songs of Stephen Schwartz

April 20, 2024-7:30PM

Come celebrate the words and music of "Pippin" composer Stephen Schwartz. Just before our spring production of "Pippin", directed and choreographed by Deena Linn, we will give a taste of every score that the composer who began his career with the mega hit "Godspell" and continues to delight us today with his "magic". Beautiful songs from lesser known delights "Children of Eden", "Rags", "The Baker's Wife", and of course the upcoming "Pippin" as well as tunes from Hollywood and of course the long running mega hit, "Wicked". There will be backstage stories and lots of fascinating and funny history from a nearly 50 year career. Curated and music directed by Justin Brehm who is returning to Civic especially for this celebration, there is only one night only to "defy gravity"!
