@playbill @composerstephen "Spark of Creation."
— Tré Easton (@treeaston) October 3, 2014
Janaya Mahealani Jones: "The Spark of Creation" and "Stranger to the Rain" - Children of Eden one of Schwartz's most underrated musicals but it is jammed packed with musical brilliance! And these two stand out to me because they are two girls, very similar to eachother who have big decisions to make. You can really see the Emotional journey in each song and the point where you realize, they were definitely right.
@playbill My favorite song by @composerstephen is "The Spark of Creation". I love its expression of yearning to explore. Very relatable.

@playbill @composerstephen WOW tough choice! I think I have to go with "Deliver Us" from "Prince of Egypt." Absolutely love that movie.

@playbill @composerstephen hands down "Out There" from "The Hunchback of Notre Dame." Can't wait for La Jolla.

@playbill @composerstephen Without a doubt, it has to be "Making Good" even if it was cut.

Miranda Miller: "Making Good" from Wicked because they both have an amazing message of not listening to what others say about you, and to follow your own path. They both say that the only opinion that you should care about is the opinion you have of yourself; If you know you are a good person, then you are.
@playbill @composerstephen “The Wizard and I”! Actually, it’s one of my favorite songs EVER! @WICKED_Musical

Kelly Shiu: “The Wizard and I” It’s where I really get to meet Elphaba. She lets her walls down, and tells about her inner self like all her hopes and dreams. It’s such a awesome moment that I loved.
@playbill @composerstephen "Meadowlark." I've listened to Patti LuPone's album so many times and it's still my favorite.

Evan Bradley-Lewis: "Meadowlark"

Andrew Stevens Purdy: "Meadowlark"!
@playbill @composerstephen "O, Bless the Lord My Soul"
— Jamie Irvine (@_lightmycandle) October 3, 2014
@playbill @composerstephen "We Beseech Thee" or "Bless The Lord" from Godspell!

Mitchell Roberts: I have a few, but I think "Corner of the Sky" has to be up there. The whole thing about wanting to belong sits nicely with me
@playbill @composerstephen "Corner of the Sky."

Tom Quicksell: "For Good" is my favorite. It strikes such a personal chord. We all have people in our lives we can relate to with that song.
@playbill @composerstephen "For Good," it gets me every time.
— Valerie Marie (@ValerieEarp) October 3, 2014
@playbill @composerstephen No contest... "FOR GOOD"!
— Jenny Marie Hatch (@JennyHatch) October 3, 2014
@playbill @composerstephen "Defying Gravity!" It's empowering and I can relate to Elphaba whenever I'm listening to it!
— Angelo Gallardo (@gelogallardo) October 3, 2014
Karyn L. Wiseman: "Defying Gravity." Hands down my favorite of all time by him.
Mitchell Randall: "Defying Gravity" is my top of his. Because in the story of Wicked he gave a character who you wouldn't of think had a lot to say, a powerful song that leaves audience members with goosebumps by the end of Act 1. And every one of these women who's played Elphaba in their careers, have done this song justice.
@playbill @composerstephen "Defying Gravity"!!!!
