Stephen Sondheim:  The Art of Making Art (Part I)

Monday, November 7 through Monday, November 28
Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at FAU, Boca Raton

Throughout his career, Stephen Sondheim explored and expanded the scope of musical theater with great passion, wit, insight, and delicious wordplay and became the most celebrated and influential composer/lyricist of the last half of the 20th century. It’s not just that he experimented with form and/or subject matter in groundbreaking musicals; it’s that he expressed deeper and more profound thoughts than any musical theater artist before him. He said his approach to a song was to “inhabit the character the way I think an actor does.” He frequently wrote about longing and, especially, ambivalence – his “favorite thing to write about” – and didn’t promise happy endings. He was both a romantic and a realist. This survey of Sondheim’s singular career is presented in two parts: Part I focuses primarily on his earlier musicals. Part II, offered in the winter, examines five of his shows over four weeks. This event is also available virtually.
