with Frank Rich

Stephen Sondheim is a recipient of the Pulitzer Prize, the Academy Award, seven Drama Desk Awards, eight Grammy Awards, and eight Tony Awards, and is widely regarded as the greatest living composer/lyricist in American musical theater. He is the author of the scores and lyrics for many plays, including A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Anyone Can Whistle, Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, Pacific Overtures, Sweeney Todd, Merrily We Roll Along, Sunday in the Park with George, Into the Woods, Assassins, Passion, and Road Show, as well as the lyrics for Gypsy and West Side Story. He is also the author of the books Finishing the Hat: Collected Lyrics (1954-1981) and Look, I Made a Hat: Collected Lyrics (1981-2011), which is forthcoming in the fall of 2011. Alan and Marilyn Bergman have said: “…Stephen Sondheim is, without dispute, THE master lyricist for the theater of our generation…” Mike Nichols has said of Finishing the Hat: “This book is a masterpiece.” Michael Feinstein has said that Mr. Sondheim “encompasses the essence of what is truly great about American Musical Theatre.”

He is the author of Hot Seat: Theater Criticism for The New York Times 1980-1993, Ghost Light: A Memoir, and The Greatest Story Ever Sold: The Decline and Fall of Truth in Bush’s America.
