Sondheim: Wordplay

Sondheim: Wordplay

“No time to sit and dither / While her withers wither with her”—theater’s greatest lyricist is also theater’s greatest wordsmith.

Though Stephen Sondheim has written both music and lyrics for some of the finest scores of the 20th century, it’s Sondheim the lyricist we’ll spotlight in this very special L&L show. A genius of dexterity, there isn’t a lyricist in American music who plays with words and language with greater virtuosity or delivers greater delight. From tongue twisters to passages of alliterative wit, we’ll examine how Sondheim puts it all together, as we celebrate the master craftsman with his own brilliant words.
