This is a must watch for anyone who is a fan of musicals.

Why?  I only ask, because I hate Sondheim's shows (except the original production of FOLLIES), so is it a must watch if you are a Sondheim fan, or musicals in general?

You've probably answered your own question if you hate Sondheim that much, but it's a terrific example of documentary filmmaking. It's organized around six key songs which represent his evolution, but If you don't believe there was any evolution then, yes, stay away.

SilentVamp,

 

HBO is selling the dvd of "Six by Sondheim" on their website. $19.98. Pretty ok price for a wonderful film tribute. My partner is a huge fan of Sondheim and he got me to be a fan of this genius as well. :-)

Thanks.  Yes, I'll stay away.  But I'm glad someone did it, and wish they were more of these type documentaries on songwriters.

I will definitely have to look into that now.  Thanks for letting me know!  :)

YES!  This is a must watch.  Especially if you're a Sondheim fan.  Steven Sondheim's love for what he does is infectious and his eagerness to teach and give back is heartwarming. I thought that this piece was beautifully put together.
