“`Stephen Sondheim is the most prolific Broadway composer in our lifetime. His credits include West Side Story and Gypsy (as lyricist); and creating A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Follies, A Little Night Music, Into the Woods and Sweeney Todd. In cinema, he contributed tunes for Reds and Dick Tracy.

“`Sondheim has won multiple Tony and Grammy awards, an Oscar, and a Pulitzer Prize. To honor his 80th birthday, the Henry Miller’s Theatre was renamed the Stephen Sondheim Theatre in 2010.

“`On November 1st, New York will bestow the city’s highest honor to the composer for career achievement in the Arts. He receives the Handel Medallion at Alice Tully Hall in Manhattan.

Congratulations to a living legend… Stephen Sondheim (above)!
