Composers and musical theatre legends Stephen Sondheim and Andrew Lloyd Webber share a wealth of common ground: Both have written long-running Broadway sensations, taken home multiple Tony Awards and even share the same birthday. We imagine the collaborations that might have been. Happy birthday, gents!
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.
