Bruce Sussman is the co-author of well over 200 published and recorded songs written for dozens of artists, films, television programs and stage musicals. The majority of these projects were written with his collaborator of 40 years, Barry Manilow. For the stage, he co-authored the scores for Ted Tally's Coming Attractions (Outer Critics Circle Award, Pulitzer Prize nominee) and Wendy Wasserstein’s Miami, both produced Off-Broadway by Andre Bishop at Playwrights Horizons in New York. His songs have been featured in numerous stage revues including The Madwoman of Central Park West, Tuxedos for Hire, and the long-running Off-Broadway and London productions of Whoop-DeeDoo! (Drama Desk Award, Obie Award). With Mr. Manilow, he wrote the song scores for the animated feature films The Pebble and the Penguin, Thumbelina and Disney's Oliver And Co. He is particularly proud to have written a song with Mr. Manilow for the televised bicentennial celebration of the United States Constitution. The song, “Let Freedom Ring," was later performed at the televised Inaugural Gala for President Clinton. His songs have been featured in over two dozen feature films and have been recorded by an array of pop, jazz, country, and international artists, earning Grammy Awards and multiple Gold and Platinum records from around the world.
