If you love American Musical Theater, you have to love Sondheim. I remember taking a Musical Theater course in college and the course was about those who changed the game. First time Sondheim was mentioned in the course was West Side Story- how is THAT for a debut.
His work is vast and expansive.
He was amazing.
His music will live on.

Time to watch Into the Woods. Followed by Sweeney Todd. Then West Side Story. And we can't forget Gypsy. Good lord. Broadway needs to revive it all next year, please. https://t.co/ZjsHS28Oxp

There’s a place for us
Somewhere a place for us
Peace and quiet and open air
Wait for us
We’ll find a new way of living
We’ll find a way of forgiving
Hold my hand and I’ll take you there
– Stephen Sondheim https://t.co/BOBD9RcxLd

My favorite song of his is Send In The Clowns. I will admit that I didn’t even begin to understand it until I turned 40. It becomes more haunting as I get older.

Stephen Sondheim was the best there ever was. I don’t know when we will ever have another of his caliber, of his breadth and scope. Just the greatest, a legend, a true titan. Rest In Peace. ❤️

It's time to revisit this. Paul Harvey, living with dementia, fought his condition by composing piano pieces. He went viral, raising over a million for charity. He was surprised with a message from his favorite composer, Stephen #Sondheim. Music changes lives. Lives touch lives. pic.twitter.com/8EsyzXhESB

Every so often someone comes along that fundamentally shifts an entire art form. Stephen Sondheim was one of those. As millions mourn his passing I also want to express my gratitude for all he has given to me and so many more. Sending my love to his nearest and dearest. pic.twitter.com/4KlnJJJipq

"Somebody crowd me with love
Somebody force me to care
Somebody let come through
I'll always be there
As frightened as you
To help us survive
