Join us for an entertaining on-stage interview hosted by Emmy Award Winning journalist Morton Dean followed by an audience Q&A. Mr. Sondheim will discuss a wide range of subjects covering his illustrious career. As a composer and lyricist, Sondheim is the most important artist to work in the American musical theater over the past half-century. He has not only collaborated on more than a dozen landmark shows and written countless standard songs but has also been the single most influential force in bringing the Broadway musical into the modern age. He has been a major force in the Dramatists Guild and Young Playwrights. Inc., two organizations that champion writers in the theater and has won every conceivable award: the Kennedy Center Honors, the Pulitzer Prize, two Grammys, an Oscar and eight Tony Awards, including a special award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theater in 2008.
