Course Description

At the age of 88, musical theater composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim continues to compose new scores. In a career spanning 60 years, Sondheim has collaborated with such artists as Leonard Bernstein, Jule Styne, Richard Rodgers, Harold Prince, and James Lapine to create such iconic works as West Side Story, Gypsy, Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, and Sunday in the Park with George. In this course, we will survey his career by listening to and watching excerpts from his shows, focusing not just on the unqualified hits, but also on those shows that were deemed failures at the time, but whose scores yielded some of the songs most beloved by cabaret artists. Come find out why Lin-Manuel Miranda has called Sondheim “musical theater’s greatest lyricist, full stop.” You will leave every class humming! Lecture (plus Questions); Facilitated Discussion; Listening to Music or Other Audio; Viewing Videos
