This chapter examines the work of William Finn. Finn grew up in Natick, Massachusetts. He attended Williams College, Stephen Sondheim’s alma mater. While there, he wrote three musicals, Rape, Scrambled Eggs, and Sizzle. He won the Hutchinson Fellowship, like Sondheim before him, and endeavored to become a composer. He supported himself in the meantime as a writer for in-flight magazines, a temp worker, and a play reader for the New York Shakespeare Festival.

Keywords:   William Finn, Rape, Broadway musicals, Sizzle, show tunes, Scrambled Eggs, Hutchinson Fellowship
