“Behind the Songs with Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty”
A Panel Discussion with Performances
Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty are considered the foremost theatrical songwriting team of their generation. They received the Tony Award, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards and two Grammy nominations for their score of the Broadway musical Ragtime. For the songs and score of Twentieth Century Fox’s animated feature film Anastasia, they garnered two Academy Award nominations and two Golden Globe nominations. They are recipients of the 2014 Oscar Hammerstein Award for Lifetime Achievement, and in 2015 were inducted into the Theater Hall of Fame.
Join us for an evening with Ahrens and Flaherty in anticipation of their newest musical Marie – Dancing Still, which begins performances at The 5th Avenue Theatre on March 22. Through stories, musical performances, and Q&A with the audience, the prolific creative team will share their unique take on the craft of writing musicals, collaborating, and transporting audiences to new worlds.
