DEFYING GRAVITY-1What do the musicals WICKED, GODSPELL and PIPPIN and Disney movies POCAHONTAS and THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME have in common? Stephen Schwartz wrote the lyrics for all of these and the music for most. DEFYING GRAVITY – THE BEST OF STEPHEN SCHWARTZ, presented by Marin Summer Theater on July 9, 10, 11 and 12 at Novato High School is a musical revue of the songs of award winning composer and lyricist Stephen Schwartz, who has written some of the most popular music in American Theater in the last 40 years.

DEFYING GRAVITY is light-hearted and colorful, packed with memorable performances, tunes you can sing along to, and upbeat and moving choreography. It is very family friendly and a wonderful treat for theater lovers of all ages. DEFYING GRAVITY features music from the Broadway hits WICKED, PIPPIN, GODSPELL, and THE BAKER’S WIFE. Also included are numbers from his children’s musical CAPTAIN LOUIE and his film work collaborating with Alan Menken on the songs for Disney’s POCAHONTAS and THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME. Mr. Schwartz’s awards include three Academy Awards, four Grammy Awards, four Drama Desk Awards, and "a tiny handful of tennis trophies".
