[Meme] Broadway Composer

Via gwyndyn, I /had/ to do this meme. Being, y'know, into musicals and all. At any rate, some of the answers you could pick were absolutely hysterical. :)

Stephen Sondheim
You, my friend, are Stephen Sondheim. You're our
new classic, the sort of composer who divides
theater fans straight down the middle with
complex plots and smart, wordy lyrics. Love you
or hate you, everyone acknowledges your talent
and you've written your share of modern
standards. (Some of) Your shows: "Sweeney
Todd," "Company," "Into the
Woods," "Sunday in the Park With
George,"...


What Broadway Composer (or Composer-Lyricist team) are you?

Sondheim was always a favorite with the Dramatic Society at Stevens Tech. My first show was as part of the crew of our 1993 production of 'A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Forum'. That show will always have a special meaning for me because I was, or so witnesses tell me, 'deliriously happy' for the entire occasion. I dunno, I was delirious at the time. Sondheim can pull off slapstick and sardonic at the same time - a rare gift.

So I think it is A Good Thing that this meme says you sort into his house, so to speak.
I get Sondheim too. Good thing I'm a Sondheim fan.

Of course, now I'm going to have Hello Little Girl in my head... and the Bang! comment in that quiz reminds me of my friends who were in Assassins in college. I saw it, I just don't remember anything except how they called it 'Athathins! Bang!' (among other things) because they were the only two straight men in the entire show.
