America’s pre-eminent producer of Broadway cast albums, Thomas Z. Shepard is the winner of 12 Grammy Awards. He is a gifted composer, pianist, orchestrator and even forensic musicologist, but his most enduring legacy is etched in the grooves of hundreds of records. If you’ve ever listened to the recorded versions of Ain’t Misbehavin’, Crazy for You, Dames at Sea, 42nd Street, or La Cage aux Folles, you’ve heard the work of Thomas Z. Shepard. His long relationship with Stephen Sondheim has produced iconic recordings of such shows as Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, Marry Me a Little, Merrily We Roll Along, Sweeney Todd and many more. During this fascinating lecture, Shepard will talk about the historic shows he’s worked on and the memorable personalities with whom he’s worked, including stars such as Julie Andrews, Sarah Brightman, Yul Brynner, Angela Lansbury, Bernadette Peters, and Anthony Quinn.
