EGOT, an acronym for the Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Awards, is the designation given to people who have won all four awards. Having won his recent Emmy Award, Alan becomes the 16th person in history to have accomplished this feat.
Alan and Glenn Slater (lyrics) have won a Daytime Emmy Award for their song "Waiting in the Wings" from the second season of the Disney Animated TV show "Rapunzel's Tangled Adventure".
Due to current world events, this event has been postponed. Alan has been named the current award honoree. The award is bestowed by the City of Vienna and named for Austrian composer Max Steiner (who penned the scores of Gone With the Wind, Casablanca and more).Purchase tickets here

The Public Works/Public Theatre's production of the new stage version of Hercules receives glowing reviews.Read the New York Times article here:
Apparently I was the first artist approached in an attempt to build an all-star team, to write and mount a 90-minute musical in a 6000-seat space. I threw out some names I assumed we’d never get to do this, just to aim as high as possible; Mike Ockrent (who had just directed 2 hit musicals – “Me and My Girl “and “Crazy For You”), the adorable and talented choreographer Susan Stroman and Lynn Ahrens (a lyricist I admired who was a part of the exclusive collaboration of Ahrens and Flaherty – the writers of “Ragtime” and “Once on this Island”.) They all said “yes”. Wow!
