Friends and colleagues – I’ve just received this from the outgoing MD of Josef Weinberger who commissioned my monster birthday podcast for Stephen Sondheim:
I am simply awestruck! This is a stunning achievement. It delineates and encapsulates the extent of the man, the creator and the work in a touching and personal way which could not be expressed in tomes of learned biography or analysis. I love that Maria Freidman exposes the truth of why I think we all adore the shows, not for all their cleverness but for their great heart. I cannot express to you and Bill Lloyd and Thomas O’Connor how grateful I am for producing something so far beyond what I imagined it would or could be. Congratulations and many thanks.
