Composer Andrew Lippa will lead a master class with undergraduate students in Professor Scot Reese's THET452: Musical Theatre class on how to prepare and perform music for the stage. Lippa is the composer and lyricist for the Broadway musical Big Fish and The Addams Family, as well as the off-Broadway hit The Wild Party. After the 90-minute master class, we will open the conversation to the audience for a 30-minute Q&A session on the “Business of the Business,” led by Michael Kerker, Director of Musical Theatre for ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers). Doug Lawler will be the musical director for the event.
