STAGE TUBE: Stephen Sondheim Talks 'Look, I Made a Hat' on NBC4!
Stephen Sondheim returns with the second volume of his collected lyrics, Look, I Made a Hat, and another remarkable glimpse into his life and life's work. As he did in the acclaimed Finishing the Hat, Sondheim richly annotates his lyrics with personal and theatre history, discussions of his collaborations, and dissections of his work - both the successes and the failures.
Picking up where he left off in the first book, he gives us all the lyrics, along with cutouts and early drafts, to the Pulitzer Prize-winning Sunday in the Park with George, as well as Into the Woods, Assassins, and Passion. Here too is an in depth look at Wise Guys, subsequently transformed into Bounce, and eventually into Road Show. And we are treated to chapters on his work for television and film and his "orphan songs," culled from parodies and special occasions over the years.
Filled with behind-the-scenes photographs and illustrations from original manuscripts, Look, I Made A Hat will be devoured by Sondheim's passionate fans today and for years to come. Hear what the author himself had to say on the book and all it contains by clicking below!
