Stephen Sondheim

Tuesday, December 06, 2011

Stephen Sondheim discusses the second volume of his collected lyrics, Look, I Made a Hat: Collected Lyrics (1981-2011) with Attendant Comments, Amplifications, Dogmas, Harangues, Digressions, Anecdotes and Miscellany. Picking up where he left off in last year’s Finishing the Hat, Sondheim shares lyrics, excluded songs and early drafts, never-before-seen material from unproduced projects, anecdotes, his advice on songwriting, discussions of theater history and the state of the industry today, and exacting dissections of his work.

I'm huge fan, a while back there was an "Into the Woods" film in the works, does he know if this will happen?

Mr. Sondheim and Anthony Perkins wrote the script for a great movie, "The Last of Sheila". Is it true that they subsequently prepared a script for another movie? If so, is there any chance that it will be filmed?
