A Little Bit of Broadway


In 1970 Stephen Sondheim wrote a “groundbreaking” musical about one man growing older, afraid of commitment and yet afraid of the alternative. What does that get him? Find out while we listen to the Tony Award winning musical – we are listening to the 1995 revival cast recording.

Music: Stephen Sondheim
Lyrics: Stephen Sondheim
Book: George Furth

We will finish with some songs from Sondheim’s first musical where he wrote both the words and music. Here’s music from A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.

Comedy tonight
Everybody ought to have a maid
My Bride
The Dirge
