Tell Me Why Podcast: David Zippel, Lyricist

In this edition of the 92nd Street Y's Tell Me Why podcast, host Julian Fleisher talks with Tony Award-winning lyricist David Zippel, whose credits include City of Angels, The Goodbye Girl, Hercules and Mulan, among others. Zippel, the artistic director for the next Lyrics & Lyricists concert at the Y in February, It Started With a Dream: Lyrics He Wrote, Lyrics He Wishes He Wrote, shares his plans for the show, what it's like working with Liza Minelli, his favorite lyricists (including Joni Mitchell and Billy Joel) and much more.

Third Age Traveler blogger wrote this today about our Lyrics & Lyricists Series:

With all the hidden treasures in NYC, it’s easy to pass one up. However, having just returned from the first program of the 39th season of Lyrics and Lyricists at the 92nd Street Y, a smile still on my face and a song—or many songs—in my heart, I must point out this gem.

Lyrics and Lyricists celebrates the Great American Songbook. These musical concerts are exceptional, and the talent covers the range of theatrical possibilities. Rob and I first attended a program when friends who had a subscription were unable to make a performance. The following year we began to subscribe. The theater is beautiful and spacious. I don't believe there is a bad seat in the house.
