With eight Oscars, 11 Grammys and a Tony vying for space on his mantelpiece, Alan Menken's bill for dry-cleaning tuxedos might match the box-office of most Off-Broadway openings.Menken gets to be the 13th if "A New Season," his song from the TV show "Galavant" wins for outstanding original music and lyrics in September's Emmy Awards.A huge critical and commercial hit, the movie has been a departure for Menken, who was not used to penning lyrics liberally sprinkled with four-letter words.After that, Menken is signed up to work with musical theater's man-of-the-hour Lin Manuel Miranda on a live-action version of "The Little Mermaid".With a movie under his belt that tackles religion, Menken is adamant that he has no intention of extending his scope to include political musicals.
