When asked his reaction to seeing Saturday Night performed in New York after 40 years, Sondheim replied, “I don’t have any emotional reaction to Saturday Night at all — except fondness. It’s not bad stuff for a 23-year-old. There are some things that embarrass me so much in the lyrics — the missed accents, the obvious jokes. But I decided, Leave it. It’s my baby pictures. You don’t touch up a baby picture — you’re a baby!”[4]

i’m only 24

i’m still young

if i write a thing it will still be a baby thing

if i write a thing it does not need to be perfect

getting better is a good thing and it means your old things will always be a little embarrassing and that’s okay and necessary, that should not prevent you from trying to make things or sharing the things you try to make

In musical theatre, we don’t have memes, we have Patti LuPone, which roughly translates to “who do you think you are?!” and I think that’s the Carole King Musical.

John Doyle actually did do a production of ALNM where the actors carry their instruments, no?

NO HE DIDN’T BUT I WANT IT HE DID LIKE LITERALLY EVERY SONDHEIM SHOW BUT THE ONE THAT MAKES THE MOST SENSE WITH INSTRUMENTS

He didn’t do Pacific Overtures and I maintain Pacific Overtures would be the best.

Ok welllll he didn’t with Passion, he doesn’t with plenty of shows he does, if you did it with Pacific Overtures you best not be trying to pass it off as kabuki, and John Doyle isn’t a one trick pony

Thank you, Nico.

imagine if alnm went with the character/instruments thing and desiree just broke out into this rad flute solo halfway through send in the clowns

Or, if Patti is cast as Desiree, a rad tuba solo.

When the “phone rings door chimes” theme and “someone is waiting” melody comes in Being Alive I just want Sondheim to personally come to my side and rip my heart out.
