Tim Rice

Bruce Pollock, 'In Their Own Words' (Collier Books), 1975

FIRST TOM SANKEY brought The Golden Screw to off-off Broadway. Then, summarizing rapidly, Al Carmines applied his lyric touch to the outrageous Home Movies and Promenade of Rosalyn Drexler at the Judson Theatre in Greenwich Village; actor-writers Rado and Ragni got cab fare uptown from Joseph Papp and put "Rock Theater" on Broadway with Hair! Following in the wake of that enormous breakthrough came some epic bashes, chief among them being Godspell by Stephen Schwartz and Jesus Christ, Superstar by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber.
