Stephen is one of my all time fave composers and lyricists and i wanted to know which of his shows people loved the most :)

for me i have 3:

Assassins: Weird and odd story, beautiful music
A Little Night Music: Beautiful music
Into The Woods: so panto but at the same time very dark

Without a doubt, Sweeney Todd.

Though if we're counting lyrics as well, West Side Story and Gypsy.

Also, I actually really like A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum.

Love all Sondheim but my fave show by Sondheim is FOLLIES (which is also my fav show by anyone!). Following close behind are Company and Pacific Overtures.

Love Assassins - like I said love all SS - just love others of his shows more. The quality of his shows ranges from brilliant to even more brilliant lol.

Btw, Matt - did you know that there's going to be a brand new production of Assassins at the Union Theatre from June 30 till July 24? It has a superb cast with the brilliant Glyn Kerslake as Booth and a friend of mine, John Barr, as Guiteau.

Better book your ticket early, Matt - the Union Theatre is pretty small and this could well sell out. I'm trying to work out when I can get to it (probably either Saturday July 17 or 24 matinees so I can travel to London and back home again in the day to save on booking a hotel) and will be booking soon. I think this will be a great production.

Everything between Company and Assassins has to rank as his best work. Everything outside of that is still pretty damn good. I really couldn't choose a favourite.

Casting for that production of Assassins (John and Glyn) sounds pretty damn good too.

Never actually seen a Sondheim show on stage, but from recordings and the film I love Sweeney.

Company and Night Music are pretty much neck and neck my faves, but i love merrily too, and love the recording of assassins but haven't seen a production of it. And i'm gutted that i can't get to London for the Union Theatre Production Fave Stephen Sondheim Show

There isn't one show that i've seen or heard that i don't like though, and that includes Anyone Can Whistle.

Company was the first Sondheim show I saw at Her Majesty's with Larry Kert and Elaine Stritch so it has to be that one - I saw it 10 times! Next would be Sweeney and then Night Music.
