A winner of three Oscars, all for Best Original Song, but shares them with Music/AlanMenken, Music/EltonJohn and Lloyd Webber respectively. Only the first one, [[WesternAnimation/{{Aladdin}} "A Whole New World"]] falls squarely into [[AwardBaitSong Award Bait]] territory. "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" relies more on the cool chords, orchestrations and lyrics than any [[LargeHam Ham]] and "You Must Love Me" has a depressing subject matter and a [[{{Music/Madonna}} performer]] who doesn't have the voice for an AwardBaitSong anyway.

Apart from writing one new song for the recent ''Joseph'' revival, he hasn't got any huge projects underway at the moment. A film adaptation of ''Aida'' was set to be released in 2010, but fell into DevelopmentHell, unlikely to come out anytime soon.

He also did the lyrics for the new songs in the stage version of ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'', as well as all the lyrics for ''Theatre/{{Aida|JohnRice}}'' and ''Disney/TheLionKing'' both on screen and stage. Since they recruited a new lyricist to beef up ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' for Broadway, it looks unlikely that he will do any more work with them. That said, a lot of critics specifically targeted the new songs as being sub-par, so Creator/{{Disney}} may ask him back for their next venture.

Not a composer, but his work falls into this category of the rest of a {{Theater}} creator, and plus, he deserves his own page. Timothy Miles Bindon Rice (born 10 November 1944) is a lyricist/writer/broadcaster, closely associated with, and all too often overshadowed by, with Creator/AndrewLloydWebber (so much so, that his ex(ish) wife wrote a letter of complaint to the The Daily Telegraph to clarify that the whole concept of ''Music/{{Evita}}'' was his idea although Lloyd-Webber is given all the credit) but also a critically acclaimed writer of musicals in his own right. He's also a big UsefulNotes/{{Cricket}} fan.

He has written the lyrics and book for these musicals. In chronological order:
