(Originally aired: March 22, 2017) Guest: Frank Wildhorn, Songwriter and Composer of hit musicals such as “The Count of Monte Cristo,” “Jekyll and Hyde,” and “The Scarlet Pimpernel” For more than two decades, Frank Wildhorn has captivated audiences worldwide with his popular musicals including "Jekyll & Hyde," "The Scarlet Pimpernel," and "The Count of Monte Cristo," to name a few. Unlike many professional composers who started learning music around the same time they learned to talk, Wildhorn taught himself to play the piano as a teenager, and before he wrote for theater, he wrote a huge hit for pop star Whitney Houston.
