tn-500_dsc_0108

If you are in the musical theatre business, chances are you have thanked heaven for the brilliance of Michael Lavine. While any one of us could easily go and pick up the scores to My Fair Lady, Carousel, Dear Evan Hansen, or Hamilton, what do we do when we need a song cut from one of those shows? Or, the whole score of a musical that closed on opening night? What if we want to see the cut songs from Oklahoma? We go to Michae Lavine, who owns one of the world’s largest private collections of musical theatre sheet music.

 

Michael pulls back the curtain on his career to discuss how he acquired nearly half a million different songs, what happened when Stephen Sondheim met Michael, and why we should all be celebrating the obscure!

 

Also, Michael shines the spotlight on John Kander, Hugh Martin, and Jerry Herman!

 

Plus: Michael sings a never before recorded Sondheim song!
