Author of the musical play Meryl Spinks says "Stephen Sondheim was 85 this year. His birthday is 22ndMarch, which, coincidently, is the same as Andrew Lloyd Webber’s - the 2 biggest composers of musical theatre shared the same birthday!
It was just one of the interesting facts I found out about Stephen Sondheim. He loves learning, not just creative arts but anything in tiny detail. That is how he is able to observe people and their passions. It was interesting to know that in the 1970s he wrote music for TV and film, and had co-written a murder mystery film. He has even acted on TV.
There were so many pieces of information I could have included as well as a hundred more songs but that would probably have led to a show which was a week long".
