    Wonderful interview. He is a most articulate and knowlegable person and so richly deverves to be in the Hall of Fame for American Theater. He has given so much to those of us who love Broadway and music in general.
    He got robbed in 2004. He should have had that Tony for WICKED. Huge mistake. I guess the theater-going public has has it’s say, because WICKED is still going strong and will for many more years. Still, I continue to be miffed on his behalf.

    ^ Although I do love Stephen’s work and obviously love the score for Wicked, I’d have to disagree with him being robbed in 2004, since personally I think Avenue Q has a really unique and intelligent score (and is also still going, except it’s off-Broadway now rather than on Broadway). They’re both great scores and both deserved to win, and though I would have loved to see Wicked win it, the fact that another great musical won it makes it ok for me 🙂

    Anyway, great interview!
