Sondheim is the winner of eight Tony Awards for such musicals as A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, Passion, and Into the Woods, as well as a Pulitzer Prize for Sunday In the Park With George. Among the other shows for which he wrote both music and lyrics are Merrily We Roll Along, Frogs, Bounce, and Pacific Overtures; he also wrote the lyrics for West Side Story, Gypsy, and Do I Hear A Waltz? Songs from many of these shows will be performed in the S.T.A.G.E concert.
