Alan's thoughts
You put your work out there, see what comes and move on. That’s what I always say about not getting attached to results. It’s all about process. I loved the work that we did on the movie of “Newsies”.

On the strength of songs like “Carrying the Banner” and “Santa Fe”, Disney moved forward with the film musical. And it went nowhere. I let it go, but somehow, a generation of kids remained attached to it. And now over 20 years later, it’s a hit on Broadway and it’s earned me a Tony Award for Best Score. Go figure…
