Peter Kellogg (writer)

Peter Kellogg is a Tony-nominated musical theater book writer and lyricist. He wrote the lyrics and the book for the 1992 production of the Broadway musical Anna Karenina, for which he received two 1993 Tony Award nominations. One for Best Book of a musical and one for the Best Original Score. He also wrote the lyrics and book for the musicals Chasing Nicolette, Desperate Measures, Lincoln In Love and Stunt Girl, which have been read and produced regionally. Kellogg also received The New York Musical Theatre Festival 2006 award for Excellence in Musical Theatre Writing (Book) for Desperate Measures.[1]

In addition, along with Albert C Todd, Kellogg wrote the English lyrics for Unruly Horses, which is a musical conceived by Moni and Mina Yakim and based on the Soviet Union song-writer and folk hero Vladimir Vysotsky.

The show features 24 musical numbers with English lyrics by Peter Kellogg and Albert C Todd and musical adaptation by Larry Hochman.
