ANOTHER BURIED TREASURE!
Happy birthday, Stephen Sondheim!
I consider Stephen Sondheim a miracle on the planet!
His music rocked my world, opened my mind to the infinite possibilities of NEW musical theatre,
and fed my insatiable hunger for brilliant lyric writing.
(When I finally decided that I could write lyrics, it was because, in large part, I had heard his art and was inspired to be my best, most clever lyrical self. Sometimes I even came close to achieving that ambition).
His birthday is upon us, and I wanted to wish him a happy ,happy birthday and to thank him for being.
I decided the best way to do that was to sing my favorite Sondheim song, arranged by my brilliant musical pals, Michele Brourman and Stephan Oberhoff.
SEND IN THE CLOWNS, sent with love to HIMSELF, the one and only Mr. Sondheim.
