The Sunday Giveaway: Two Tickets to Snapshots by Stephen Schwartz
Everyone knows Stephen Schwartz wrote Wicked. And Pippin. And Godspell. And maybe you even know that he wrote some songs from Working. And then there’s Pocahontas, The Prince of Egypt, Enchanted and a whole lot more.
The man is a musical making machine.
Goodspeed Opera House is going even deeper into the maestro’s past and producing one of his lesser known works entitled Snapshots. (One of my favorite things to do is take a super successful artist/author like Schwartz and look at the earlier works in their career to see the beginnings of the style that will be solidified in future projects. A great example? See Cannibal! The Musical, written by Matt Stone and Trey Parker, and you’ll see the roots of both South Park and The Book of Mormon.)
And one of you is going to see Snapshots!
How do you win?
