This chapter examines the work of Stephen Schwartz. It starts with an extended commentary of his career, and this is followed by details on productions, with data and song information. Schwartz became enamored by musical theater at the age of nine, when he attended Shinbone Alley (April 13, 1957), a flop musical composed by next-door neighbor George Kleinsinger. During high school in the New York suburb of Mineola, he attended weekend classes at Juilliard. He earned a B.F.A at Carnegie Tech (now Carnegie–Mellon University) in Pittsburgh, during which he wrote a college musical called Pippin, Pippin. He returned to New York, found work as a record producer, and got himself an agent: Leonard Bernstein’s sister, Shirley.
