#294552 Why Is Webber Crucified Whilst Sondheim Revered?

Posted Titan on 27 February 2014 - 04:14 PM

It all depends on why you go to the theatre (and there is no right or wrong answer here) and/or what mood youre in.  If you go to be entertained and escape reality for a few hours then Sondheim probably isnt your bag.  If you like something more involving and possibly with deeper meaning and emotions then Sondheim might be for you.

I would personally class ALW more in the Rodgers and Hammerstein camp with crowd pleasing shows and instantly hummable songs.

I would also say ALW and Sondheim are genuises in their own way.  Both have managed to create brilliant, memorable shows from original subject matters and both should be celebrated for their own individual achievements.
