Celebrating the work of Howard Ashman

Welcome to Part Of His World, a website devoted to the life and work of writer, director and lyricist, Howard Ashman.

If you're new to this site, please take a look around.

Howard was an extraordinary artist and an extraordinary man — we'd like you to know him better.

But Part of His World is about the past.  You are about the future. 

So if Ariel is part of your youth, if Feed Me is part of your vocabulary, if you believe in genies and beasts, if you love theater or animation or musical comedy, then be our guest we want to hear from you.

The Feed Me area on this site is for you.  We hope you'll use it.
