StageSchool Ireland wishes Stephen Sondheim a happy 89th Birthday!

Stephen Sondheim’s birthday is this Friday 22nd March and we’d love if you’d help us in wishing the legendary composer a happy 89th birthday!

Mr. Sondheim’s resounding impact in the world of musical theatre has deeply resonated for decades. From Into the Woods to Sweeney Todd, The Frogs to Forum, Sunday in The Park to Saturday Night, the genius of Sondheim transcends generations, geographies, and has helped lay the groundwork for contemporary musical theatre.

We’d like to send Sondheim an outpouring of birthday love and are hoping you can help us as we’re Putting It Together. Could you please take a moment to send us a note and tell us what Sondheim means to you? Whether it be your earliest memory of hearing his music, performing in a Sondheim show - or how your understanding of the complex characters and stories have changed over the years since first discovering the magic of Stephen Sondheim. We’ll send your wishes his way and ensure he is celebrated on his big day.

Please email your sentiments to our friends at MTI with the subject “Happy Birthday Sondheim” to, and (as a sign off he’s sure to appreciate) close it with “So help me, Sondheim.
