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.

Alan Menken (b 22 July 1949) is a composer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist for theater and film. Beginning with ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', for which he wrote both score and songs with lyricist Howard Ashman (the same team who wrote ''Theatre/LittleShopOfHorrors''; this musical was executive produced by David Geffen, who recommended Ashman and Menken to Disney Studio chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg, who also had another ''LSOH'' alumni, Peter Schneider, as his partner in Disney Animation), he has been the go-to guy for [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney musicals]], including ''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.

After ''Mermaid'''s success, Menken wrote ''Beauty and the Beast'' and began ''Aladdin'' with Ashman before the latter's death in 1991. Since then, Menken has written with a multitude of lyricists, including Tim Rice (''Aladdin'', the {{Screen To Stage Adaptation}}s of ''Beauty and the Beast'' and ''Aladdin''), Jack Feldman (''Film/{{Newsies}}'' and its ScreenToStageAdaptation), Creator/StephenSchwartz (''Pocahontas'', ''The Hunchback of Notre Dame'', ''Film/{{Enchanted}}'', the ScreenToStageAdaptation of ''Hunchback''), David Zippel (''Disney/{{Hercules}}'', ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''), and Glenn Slater (''Disney/HomeOnTheRange'', ''Tangled'', the {{Screen To Stage Adaptation}}s of ''The Little Mermaid'' and ''Film/SisterAct'', ''Series/{{Galavant}}'').

Due to the cancellation of Disney's adaptation of ''Literature/TheSnowQueen'' (later retooled into ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', with Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez writing songs and Christophe Beck composing score), Menken was going to provide music for a Creator/DreamWorksAnimation movie titled ''Series/{{Lidsville}}'', but after former co-worker Katzenberg's studio wound up in a rut and restructured their business strategy and film lineup, word on ''Lidsville'' has gone silent. He's working on the songs for ''WesternAnimation/SausageParty'', an [[PlayingAgainstType R-rated animated comedy]] co-written by Creator/SethRogen and [[Film/ThisIsTheEnd Evan]] [[Film/{{Superbad}} Goldberg]][[labelnote:*]]Christopher Lennertz will provide the rest of the soundtrack[[/labelnote]].
