Happy Birthday…

 

Another birthday to remember today…

This one rather personally special…

But then, I would imagine everyone I bring up in this blog is rather remarkable…

To me, anyway…

 

It’s not like I’m taking requests for these posts…

 

Today I ask you to join me in extending the warmest wishes to Stephen Sondheim.

And for you enjoyment… the opening to the musical Frogs.
The writing, especially lyrically, is perfectly, typically Sondheim.
There’s no other way to describe it.

I saw the younger gentleman in this video perform in Sunday in the Park on Broadway.
As for Frogs, I was a consultant for a very minor bit of physical sleight of hand to another Broadway production…

Got to be in the same room, on several occasions, with Sondheim himself.

You can have your famous movie stars, and your big time musicians, et. al…

Give me the creators!

Every time!

 

Let’s have one more for the road…

It’s a truly remarkable performance.

But there first has to be something there worth performing.

 

Happy Birthday, Stephen…
