Now in his ninth decade, Stephen Sondheim remains the most revolutionary composer/lyricist of our time. In this course, we’ll take a comprehensive look at the “Shakespeare of the Broadway musical.” Both familiar and rare video and audio clips of his work will be used to demonstrate his achievements and profound insights into the human condition. We’ll watch interviews with Sondheim, some filmed within the past two years, and your instructor will share the insights she’s gained from her own interviews and correspondence with him.
Bonnie Weiss, M.A. has taught for OLLI at S.F. State, UC Berkeley, Santa Clara, and Dominican Universities.
