"Stephen Sondheim, Theater's Greatest Lyricist" said the headline on a recent New York Times story. True, but that's only half of the story. Sondheim has been the American musical theater's greatest composer-lyricist for nearly 60 years. He has pushed the envelope of the musical by stretching his artistic gifts with each new work.
In this course, we'll explore Sondheim's consummate ability to create mini-dramas through the seamless and insightful melding of music and lyrics.
