"... the theater’s most revered and influential composer-lyricist of the last half of the 20th century and the driving force behind some of Broadway’s most beloved and celebrated shows."

He was 91.

Sondheim was responsible for a ton of well-known musicals: Sunday in the Park with George, Follies, Company, Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods, and my fave, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.

I just heard about his passing. How sad. Cornerstone of American theater. May he RIP. He was so very talented.

I sat in the pit band for a couple amateur productions of his shows. The musical parts were quite challenging but fun to play. He was a master.
