Alan Menken (b 22 July 1949) is a composer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist for theater and film. Since 1989, he has been the go-to guy for [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney musicals]], having composed the songs and scores for ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'', ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'', ''Disney/{{Pocahontas}}'', ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'', and ''Disney/{{Tangled}}''. This has earned him ''eighteen'' UsefulNotes/AcademyAward nominations, eight of which he won--more Oscars than any other living individual. He's an Emmy short of being listed among TheEGOTs - though Menken [[MedalOfDishonor proudly talks about the]] GoldenRaspberryAward [[http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/arts/preview/la-et-cm-spring-arts-preview-theater-newsies-20150315-story.html for]] ''Film/{{Newsies}}'', which ironically earned the Tony when adapted to stage.

Menken first made a name for himself as a composer in 1982 with the off-broadway musical ''Theatre/LittleShopOfHorrors'', for which he co-wrote the songs with lyricist/librettist Howard Ashman. The musical's producer David Geffen, recommended them to then-Disney Studio chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg (fellow ''...Horrors'' alumnus Peter Schneider was Katzenberg's partner) to compose the songs for the studio's adaptation of ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', beginning what would be a long and fruitful partnership between Menken and the studio.
