She is one half of the first female songwriting team to hit Broadway and one of the most important figures in the American Musical Theater of the 1970s. Along with composer Nancy Ford, the wonderful Gretchen Cryer has given the world such musicals as Now Is The Time For All Good Men…., Shelter, and I’m Getting My Act Together And Taking It On The Road, as well as appearing in the original Broadway companies of Little Me, 110 In The Shade, and 1776. Gretchen pulls back the curtain on her career to discuss how she and Nancy Ford created a partnership that would change the landscape for females in musical theater, what it was like jumping ship in Little Me, and why the Founding Fathers saved her career. Also, Gretchen shines the spotlight on Joe Papp, Austin Pendleton, and Betty Buckley!
