The songwriting team, one of the longest-running musical partnerships in Broadway history, is probably best known for Broadway shows such as Baby (seven Tony nominations including Best Musical and Best Score), Big (Tony nomination for Best Score), and two Off-Broadway revues, Starting Here, Starting Now (Grammy nomination for Best Cast Album), and Closer Than Ever (Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical). These two shows started in smaller nightclub venues: the cabaret at the Manhattan Theatre Club and Eight Eight’s, respectively.
