Episode 17: Lyricist-Composer Amanda Green on High Fidelity

On this episode of STAGE GROK, I talk with Broadway lyricist and composer Amanda Green about the musical High Fidelity, its creation, its production, its reception, and its rebirth here in St. Louis at New Line Theatre in 2008, and again in 2012. Amanda has written lyrics for Bring It On, and she wrote new lyrics for the recent revival of On the 20th Century. She also wrote lyrics and some of the music for Hands on a Hardbody, which New Line also produced.

Read host Scott Miller's essay on High Fidelity from his book Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll, and Musicals.

STAGE GROK host Scott Miller is the artistic director of New Line Theatre in St. Louis, and the author of six books on musical theatre, nine musicals, and the musical theatre blog The Bad Boy of Musical Theatre. Opening and closing theme music: Overture from Cry-Baby the Musical by Adam Schlessinger and David Javerbaum, from New Line Theatre's 2012 production. Used by permission. Logo designed by Matt Reedy.
