Sondheim on stationery

If the name Stephen Sondheim doesn’t ring any bells for you, his work almost certainly would. A protege of Oscar Hammerstein II (of Rogers & Hammerstein fame), he was the librettist for Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story, and the libresttist-composer of Sweeny Todd, plus a host of other broadway hits. The Guardian has an extract from his new book, where he gives some fascinating, if […]

Making fun of Airport Security
