Stephen Sondheim

Stephen Sondheim: A Life by Meryl Secrest

I got this book through a Reddit Gift Exchange of some sort. I was anxious to jump in. It worked ok for me.

I really wanted to know more about the person rather than the productions. I feel fairly well-versed in the productions. I have been exposed to him most of my theatre career. I have been involved in a few of his productions. With that, I learned much. I wanted something more in-depth.

I devoured the first part of the book was my favorite. I loved learning about his school years and his family. So, it does provide a balance. I was just hoping for more biographical info during his hey-day Regardless, I enjoyed revisiting many of these shows. I had show tunes in my head as he plodded along his career. It was a fun read, but not as juicy as I was hoping.
