A belated birthday tribute to Stephen Sondheim!
Stephen Sondheim is responsible for such classic shows as A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, Follies, Company, and Sunday in the Park With George and wrote the lyrics for Gypsy and West Side Story just to name a handful.
He turned 87 years old yesterday and I forgot to post about it. Still, it would be ridiculous to miss an opportunity to feature some numbers from his shows.
But how do you decide?
Well, I’m going to make an executive decision and pick a handful of my favorites.
By the way, these photos are from Sondheim’s 80th birthday celebration when such Tony winning legends as Bernadette Peters, Patti LuPone, Elaine Stritch, Audra MacDonald and others performed his numbers.
Here are some of my faves:
