A list of current and back issues: FIND ISSUES OF THE SCHWARTZ SCENE

Message from Carol de Giere, editor

I created this independent blog as a place to post regular updates related to Broadway and film composer-lyricist, Stephen Schwartz. This site is an extension of my work  on  www.MusicalSchwartz.com and my research for the Stephen Schwartz biography  Defying Gravity.
