Photo Coverage: Dramatists Guild Fund Salon with Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin

Dramatists Guild Fund Salons offer you a behind-the-scenes peek into the creative process of the writers of the American Theater presenting award-winning dramatists as they share never-before-heard stories behind their most beloved works. In addition to sharing their inspiration, they also often invite the stars who brought their work to life onstage. The most recent subjects of this series were composer Matthew Sklar and lyricist/ book writer Chad Beguelin.

Composer Matthew Sklar and Lyricist / Bookwriter Chad Beguelin have been writing musicals together for over twenty years. The Tony Award-Nominated team wrote the scores for the Broadway musicals ELF and THE WEDDING SINGER. Their upcoming projects include THE PROM and GOTTA DANCE.

Other credits include THE RHYTHM CLUB (Signature Theater Company), JUDAS & ME (NYMF) and WICKED CITY (Mason Street Warehouse).

They are the recipients of The Jonathan Larson Performing Arts Foundation Award, The Edward Kleban Award, the Gilman & Gonzalez-Fall Musical Theater Award and ASCAP Foundation Richard Rodgers New Horizons Award.
