Stephen Sondheim: The Maverick of American Musical Theater: An Exploration of Broadway's Most Revered and Influential Composer & Lyricist

Wednesday, December 14, 2022 @ 12:30pm
Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at FAU, Boca Raton

With the passing of Stephen Sondheim, America and the world lost one of its most beloved and revered composers and lyricists – one who redefined the boundaries of what a Broadway musical could express and how it expressed it. Earning recognition initially as a brilliant lyricist for "West Side Story" (music: Leonard Bernstein) and "Gypsy!" (music: Jule Styne), Sondheim then went on to write both music and lyrics for "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum." Teaming up with producer/director Harold Prince, the 1970s brought a string of groundbreaking shows, including "Company," "A Little Night Music" and "Sweeney Todd." The 1980s brought "Sunday in the Park with George" and "Into the Woods," collaborations with director and playwright James Lapine. Sondheim's works have stood the test of time because they explore the human condition with all its ambiguity and frailty. This event is also available virtually.
