Inventive & Entertaining TEXTS WITH COLLABORATORS Tumblr
An inventive and entertaining new Tumblr account titled TEXTS WITH COLLABORATORS imagining conversations between theatrical luminaries has recently been unveiled, providing fine and funny fodder for musical theatre fans.
The imaginatively written page contains numerous imaginary interactions between many of Broadway's best and brightest - Stephen Sondheim, James Lapine, Frank Loesser, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Lerner & Loewe, Jerry Herman, Leonard Bernstein, Hal Prince, Arthur Laurents, and more.
Additionally, the site contains countless inside references to legendary feuds, historical events and the many famous musicals penned by the figures represented, as well.
A sample interaction might be the following exchange between Sondheim and Prince depicting what a modern text conversation might look like had texting existed back when MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG was being written in 1980:
"PRINCE: here's to us... who's like us...
SONDHEIM: oh, you
PRINCE: i really love the draft so far. but...can we just make sure... amidst the pathos... there's a fun song in there that people will walk out humming?
SONDHEIM: srsly? did you even read the second half?"
