Happy 80th Birthday, Stephen Sondheim!

Side By Side By Sondheim (1976), Marry Me A Little (1980), You're Gonna Love Tomorrow (1983) Putting It Together (1993), and Sondheim on Sondheim (2010) are anthologies or revues of Sondheim's work as composer and lyricist, featuring both performed songs and songs cut from productions.

Just to name a few...

  1. And yet his popularity still fails to hit the heights that should have been reached. Among those of us who love his work, he's an icon. Among those whose idea of good musical theater stops at the R&H an L&L songbooks, his shows go unattended. I remember an excellent production of "Sweeney Todd" in 2000 at the Ocala Civic Theatre that had a more than half empty auditorium. The same was true for the same show at the Seaside Theatre in Daytona Beach. Now both places are bastions of the senior community so maybe there's a connection.
