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.

Lloyd Webber, who won Original Score Tony Awards for his work on Evita, Cats and Sunset Boulevard, is represented on Broadway with the long-running The Phantom of the Opera, which celebrated its 25th anniversary Jan. 26, 2013. Read the Playbill.com feature story about the star-studded evening.
