William Finn is a two–time Tony Award winner for the groundbreaking musical Falsettos, and was most recently represented on Broadway with The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (which closed in January). Make Me a Song features classics from these shows as well as selections from Romance in Hard Times, Elegies and the yet-to-be-produced The Royal Family of Broadway, now apparently a shelved show.
