The Songs of Howard Ashman
May 20, 2020
Howard Ashman was an extraordinary writer, lyricist, director, and leader in the entertainment industry, creating award-winning songs for a variety of shows, films, and television. Among his numerous creations, his most recognized projects include Little Shop of Horrors, Smile, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, and Beauty and the Beast. His talent was recognized through a multitude of awards and honors, including two Oscars, two Golden Globes, four Grammys, a Drama Desk Award, a London Evening Standard, and the prestigious status of Disney Legend. Howard’s life would be cut short when he passed away from AIDS in March 1991. To celebrate what would be Howard’s 70th birthday, an array of talent from entertainment and Broadway will come together to pay tribute to Howard’s legacy, taking audiences through a musical journey to become Part of His World.
A portion of proceeds from this event will be donated to the Howard Ashman Trust for Theater Arts, advancing theater arts and techniques as educational tools to encourage the development of creativity, compassion, and empathy in young lives.
