The last section on Wicked goes through the whole creative process of what is going to probably be the most successful musical of all time. A must for budding musical theater writers.
This book is a musical theatre cornucopia.
In Carol de Giere's book, "Defying Gravity: The Creative Career of Stephen Schwartz from Godspell to WIcked", she tells the fascinating story of the life of Stephen Schwartz from his college days to "Wicked" and beyond. It's all there from his early successes with "Godspell", "Pippin" and "The Magic Show" to lesser successes with projects in the late 1970's and 1980's then on to winning academy awards for his work on "Pocahontas" and "The Prince of Egypt" and then to the massive success of "Wicked". Anyone who is interested in the works of Mr. Schwartz as well as the interesting stories behind the scenes in the development of Broadway musicals should read this book. It is too bad that more movies haven't been made of Stephen Schwartz's musicals, but you can read about them in Carol's book and you can buy original cast CDs of shows such as "Pippin", "Wicked", "Children of Eden" and "The Baker's Wife" through Amazon. In addition, "The Stephen Schwartz Album" CD was released in 1999. It features Broadway actors singing some of Stephen's songs and it is a tremendous CD. Also, you can find the soundtracks for "Pocahontas", "The Prince of Egypt", "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" and "Enchanted". In the middle of all of his other projects, Stephen also found the time to issue at least two solo CDs, "Uncharted Territory" and "Reluctant Pilgrim". Trust me. You can't go wrong listening to Stephen's music. In my humble opinion, his songs rival those of earlier giants in musical theatre such as Rodgers and Hammerstein and Lerner and Loewe.
The world is a much better place with talented individuals such as Stephen Schwartz and Carol de Giere.
