ABOUT THE ARCHIVES
Welcome to the Stephen Schwartz Forum Archives – a collection of questions and answers from previous incarnations of this Forum from 1998 to 2009, organized by subject. Please carefully check relevant sections before submitting new questions for Mr. Schwartz in the Stephen Schwartz Forum.
In this archive, replies to questions are marked according to who answered them: Stephen Schwartz or his assistant, in most cases. Additional answers are provided by several other people familiar with Schwartz’s work such as Stephen Oremus, the Music Supervisor/ Co-Music Arranger on Wicked, and Carol de Giere, website publisher for fan site www.MusicalSchwartz.com, and author of the authorized Stephen Schwartz biography “Defying Gravity: the Creative Career of Stephen Schwartz, from Godspell to Wicked.” www.DefyingGravityTheBook.com
TOPICS: The information included in the archive has been arranged by topic. As some of the comments by Stephen may have fit under multiple topics, a “see also” reference has been included rather than duplicate the information. Enjoy!
