I honestly never knew much about this genius man until last night when I patroned the opening night of Sondheim on Sondheim – part musical review, party documentary, of this guy’s work over the last 50 years. Basically he’s written so many musicals (and so many numbers that didn’t actually end up in the show, that can constitute a whole evening.) It was fascinating to hear about his process, and his life.
MORE IMPORTANTLY the after party was at Planet Holywood? and feature garlicky shrimp pasta, and so I ate a lifetime’s worth.
Now if you excuse me, I must go prepare for Brunstetter on Brunstetter (a ten minute play, with songs.)
