Book Description:

Stephen Sondheim is the dean of American theatre lyricists. These two remarkable volumes show us why. They provide a glimpse into his creative process and a history of the art form as an added bonus. It is a rare privilege to introduce musical theatre students to the wonder and complexity of a Sondheim musical.
