Happy Birthday Stephen Sondheim!

Today in Stephen Sondheim's 80th birthday! For those of you who don't know, Sondheim is perhaps one of the greatest musical theatre composers ever. I love his work and he is just genius. His melodies are haunting and the lyrics are poignant. I'm excited because I will get to be in one of his shows, Into the Woods, this summer. Its a beautiful show, and just like any other Sondheim musical, it has a wonderful message. Happy Birthday Mr. Sondheim from one of your biggest fans!

In honor of his birthday, here is the video of one of my favorite Sondheim pieces: A Little Priest from Sweeney Todd.
