In my nearly five years in Theatre, the most common question I am asked is how I ended up in Theatre. This question has many answers. Most stemming from a childhood spent consuming every Disney movie I could get my hands on. Some of the most intriguing inspiration can be traced back to a very unique person by the name of Howard Ashman. Being born in the mid-1990’s, had its advantages. I had all the classics and the Disney Renaissance films readily available for me. The renaissance of the 80’s-90’s would never have occurred without Howard Ashman. His love of Disney, not unlike my own, permeated his art, both on the screen and on the stage. When he came to Disney after Little Shop he shared his knowledge of stage practices with the animators and story teams, cementing the futures of Disney and Theatre. They are now forever entwined. Without his influence on Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin, I doubt Disney would still be making animated films. Unfortunately, Howard died on this day 26 years ago amidst the AIDS crisis that took so many in and outside the Arts community. Today is bittersweet. I’ll never be able to express in person how much his contribution to Theatre and Animation has affected me, but I am joyous for all the work he left behind for us to enjoy. His songs of love, courage, empathy, and hope will reach far beyond my generation and for that, he will never be forgotten.
“To our friend Howard, who gave a mermaid her voice and a beast his soul, we will be forever grateful.”

Soul’s crush on the girl he sees jogging in the park is the one thing that makes his crappy barista job tolerable. Learning how to run in order to keep up with her might just kill him though. Also featuring Black*Star as a Total Bro.
