Stephen Sondheim Speaks Against the Commercialization of Broadway: Wants “Supermarket of Musicals” >>

Famed Broadway composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim ('Company,' 'Into the Woods,' 'Sweeney Todd') has never been afraid to take a risk. While each of his works maintain certain signatures, they don’t all fit the same cookie pattern. Sondheim’s song structure varies far from the norm. So it is no wonder that Sondheim wants more variety from Broadway. Recently, Sondheim came out against the commercialisation of Broadway, calling for a “supermarket of musicals.”
