Stephen Sondheim Event

Kicking off the Rutgers Writers' Conference is a special pre-conference event on June 1, 2018, featuring legendary composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim (A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Sweeney Todd, Assassins, Into the Woods). Sondheim, a Grammy, Oscar, Tony, Pulitzer Prize, and Presidential Medal of Freedom winner, has been hailed as the most important artist to work in the American musical theater over the past half-century. Mr. Sondheim will be interviewed onstage by NPR's David Bianculli about his prolific career as a composer and lyricist. This event is co-sponsored by Rutgers–New Brunswick Office of Summer and Winter Sessions and the Mason Gross School of the Arts. Tickets available in person or via telephone. Call 848-932-7511.
