STEPHEN SONDHEIM: EXAMINING HIS WORKS
During Winter 2013 at Baruch College, CUNY
Some say Stephen Sondheim’s shows sound spectacular; the lyrics scintillate. His splendid songs soar. He has reached a supreme status by his eight Tonys, eight Grammys, and a Pulitzer Prize. We will study his success and style. Specifically, we will see his shows and read Stephen Sondheim: Finishing the Hat: Collected Lyrics (1954-1981). In addition, we will subject his book and lyrics for analysis. Several classes will be scheduled at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. On tape, we will view some of Sondheim’s recent Broadway hits such as Sweeney Todd (2005) and A Little Night Music (2009).
Tuesday and Wednesday 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm
Thursday and Friday 1:00 pm – 3:10 pm
