Sondheim, who won Original Score Tony Awards for his work on Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods and Passion— not to mention a Tony for Lifetime Acheivement in 2008 — was recently represented on Broadway with the critically acclaimed revival of Follies. His Tony-winning Into the Woods was also seen last summer in a Shakespeare in the Park production at the Delacorte Theater.
