Two-time Tony Award-nominated composer Frank Wildhorn celebrates his birthday Nov. 29. Playbill.com takes a look back at the composer's past Broadway productions. His work includes Jekyll & Hyde, The Scarlet Pimpernel and the recent Bonnie & Clyde among other titles.
Wildhorn made his Broadway debut in 1997 with Jekyll & Hyde, which ran for nearly four years at the Schoenfeld.
His Scarlet Pimpernel opened the same year at the Minskoff Theatre. It would close and "re-boot" twice, with changes to score and script and new lead actors, before ending its run in 2000.
Other Broadway composing credits include The Civil War (1999), Dracula (2004), Wonderland (2010) and Bonnie & Clyde (2011).
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
