In celebration of their March 22 shared birthday, we honor Sondheim, who turns 83, and Lloyd Webber, who turns 65, with a look back at their careers in music and theatre.
Sondheim, who won Original Score Tony Awards for his work on Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods and Passion — not to mention a Tony for Lifetime Acheivement in 2008 — was represented on Broadway last season with the critically acclaimed revival of Follies. His Tony-winning Into the Woods was also seen last summer in a Shakespeare in the Park production at the Delacorte Theater. His Passion currently plays Off-Broadway.
Lloyd Webber, who won Original Score Tony Awards for his work on Evita, Cats and Sunset Boulevard, is represented on Broadway with the long-running The Phantom of the Opera, which celebrated its 25th anniversary Jan. 26. Read the Playbill.com feature story about the star-studded evening.
Happy birthday, Stephen Sondheim and Andrew Lloyd Webber!
Sondheim receives his first Tony Award in 1971 for Company.
