An obvious bias towards Sondheim, but who can blame you? There is no comparison.

Sorry, I didn't mean to put two messages here. I just haven't got the hang of the new system, with all those buttons to pick. Doubt if I ever will. The older system was so much easier to manipulate.

Can we not start one of those petitions on the Downing Street website for Angela Lansbury to come over in a transfer of the (albeit not Sondheim) show she is about to do in NYC?

Sondheim is a genius.  ALW is not, although admittedly most of his shows are much more acessible that Sondheims.
I won't be called a baggage!
