Wildhorn's works span the worlds of popular, theatrical and classical music. In 1999, he became the first American composer in 22 years to have three shows running simultaneously on Broadway: "Jekyll & Hyde" (written with Leslie Bricusse), which received two Tony nominations; "The Scarlet Pimpernel" (written with Nan Knighton), which received four Tony nominations; and "The Civil War" (written with Jack Murphy and Gregory Boyd), which received two Tony nominations. These shows continue to tour the country and world. Wildhorn also wrote additional songs for Broadway's "Victor/Victoria" (written with Leslie Bricusse) and was recently back on Broadway with "Dracula: The Musical" (written with Don Black & Christopher Hampton). He was also a producer and co-creator for "Harlem Song," the first open-ended theatrical run at the famed Apollo Theater in Harlem, NY.
