Jen Lau: While it's hard just to pick one (they're all equally brilliant), I must say "No One Is Alone" is among my favorites, along with "With So Little To Be Sure Of" and "The Road You Didn't Take"
Jordan Jacobs: "No One is Alone" is really the greatest song of optimism. In dark times, there's always someone there for you. It's a beautiful message!
Hunter Emmett Burke: My absolute favorite by Sondheim is "No One Is Alone." Into the Woods was the first Sondheim show I ever performed in and every night, that song struck a chord with me that none of his other songs had done before. It was like a fresh experience every night.
Amy Boehly: "No One is Alone" from Into the Woods because it really speaks to everyone in some way.
Margaret Daisy Rose: lyrically, "Somewhere" from West Side Story. But overall it would have to be either "Johanna" from Sweeney Todd or "No One Is Alone" from Into the Woods. But really all of his songs are epic so they is no real way to pick one.
