Stephen Sondheim exited Stage Left on Friday, aged 91. Composer. Lyricist. Genius. Few people are willing to explore their inner world and share, honestly, what they find. Sondheim wasn't just talented. He was brave. A rare man. In the early days he was criticised for not writing toe tapping tunes. But life isn't always upbeat and Sondheim wanted his work to be true to life. Prodigy of Oscar Hammerstein, Sondheim considered teaching a sacred profession. His lyrics and music articulated complex emotions we all feel, without sugar. Sondheim celebrated all that it means to be human and offered answers to big questions: Can forgiveness overcome the need for revenge? SWEENEY TODD Is all that glitters, gold? FOLLIES What does it feel like to be an immigrant? WEST SIDE STORY Why get married? COMPANY Define the mother/daughter relationship: GYPSY Can we honour the old and create anew? A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM Why do saints get shot? ASSASSINS Will our perception change when we join the dots? SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE What do you leave to your child when you're dead? (Only whatever you put in its head.) INTO THE WOODS Does love always triumph? PASSION. By confronting the light, dark and many shades of grey within himself Sondheim created balance and gave the theatre's greatest gift. Healing. "If I cannot fly, let me sing!" Fly safe, beloved Stephen Sondheim. Tears and smiles... #sendintheclowns #tonight #joanna #alittlepriest #barcelona #finishingthehat #childrenwilllisten #nooneisalone #themillersson #notadaygoesby #oldfriends #bobbyandjackieandjack #everythingscominguproses #invocationandinstructionstotheaudience #comedytonight #anyonecanwhistle #iremembersky #theboyfrom #soonerorlater #beingalive #lucyandjessie #broadwaybaby #imstillhere #theladieswholunch #ripstephensondheim

Kedy si sa naposledy cítil/a nažive? Tak, že ti bilo srdce, žily si mal/a plné šťastia, radosti, či dokonca smútku, alebo bolesti. Kedy si sa naposledy cítil/a nažive? Plná lásky, dobroty. Plný pokoja, mieru. Kedy sme sa naposledy cítili nažive? Plní toho nevysvetliteľného pocitu, ktorý zaplavil naše telo i dušu. Poznáme ten pocit? Poznáš ten pocit? Kedy si ho naposledy zažil/a? Tak kedy?

It took me a minute to even process the feelings of emptiness and silence that I imagined when I heard of the passing of the incredible Stephen Sondheim. 💔💔 As a huge musical theater fan and Broadway baby his genius has really been a great part of the soundtrack of my life! He had a song for every mood and emotion. I feel very blessed to have lived during the time he was alive and writing. Being Alive, Send in the Clowns, Sundays, anything from West Side Story and Sweeney Todd… among my faves, but far too many to list. He will be missed and we are better for his having passed this way….😪😪💔💔 #onthemove #whatsnext #globaltrendambassador #stephensondheim #broadway #musicaltheatre #broadwaybaby #RIP #soundtrackofmylife #ilovebroadwaymusicals #broadwaymusicals #beingalive #sendintheclowns #sundays

Though musical theater is no interest of @manylesions , @elegantcroptop felt her life was changed the first time she saw the film, Singing in the Rain. The two most important musicals in her life after that are Cabaret (which she saw staring @alancummingsnaps on Broadway) and Company, an @realsondheim masterpiece. It only seems fitting that a man that could write so eloquently about the artistic process, meat pies, and love, would be honored on the @clubcumming stage. Please watch and listen to everything Sondheim wrote. He was brilliant artist who could strike anyone with at least one of his works. #sondheim #beingalive

Like so many of us after hearing the news of the passing of Mr. Sondheim, we sat in sadness, shed tears in silence and without prompt started to listen to music from his epic songbook spanning over sixty years. Songs we know every lyric to, and some we never listened to before, any interview we could find online or article that was available. Hanging on to what we felt would bring us closer to this giant. Thank you for awaking our senses, unearthing deep emotions, taking our breath away with your words, and your melodies. Your music has been the soundtrack to so many moments in our lives as women, as a mother, for my children and my family, as humans and artists. You will continue to make us grow and realize ourselves in obvious and unexpected ways. Your window into the human condition will be an inspiration forever. RIP legend, giant, genius, human. #stephensondheim #sunday #beingalive #finishing thehat #herestoyouSteve

A tribute to #Sondheim - may he rest in peace. The power of musical theatre, its synesthesia, its spectacle, its humanity, was all embodied in his artistry. A man who truly won the war for art, in that a 15 year old boy many hundreds of miles away, with little to no knowledge of musical theatre above and beyond Cats, would become lit for life by an understanding of the beauty in this world beyond all its suffering. Thank you for the last 20 years. #Sondheim #Company #Beingalive #musicaltheatre #Broadway #Westend #singer #Bobby

RIP to one of the greats. Now a Giant in the Sky,., Stephen Sondheim ❤️ . Some of my favourite roles to play were written by this legend. There will always be a special place in my heart for the role of Johanna in Sweeney Todd, and I’ve sung his beautiful lyrics as Maria in West Side Story many times. I feel that every time you return to Sondheim, you find something new in the music that gives you a new perspective on life and music. Always a pleasure to perform. Sending out lots of love xxxx

“Somebody need me too much Somebody know me too well Somebody pull me up short And put me through hell And give me support For being alive Make me alive” “They're singing, "Happy birthday" You just wish you could run away Who cares about a birthday? But 30/90, hey Can't you be optimistic? You're no longer eons of you Turn 30, 1990 Voom! You're passes What can you do?” I turn 30 in a few months and all I keep doing is playing these songs as that day draws closer. And with the sudden passing of the genius that is Sondheim, they’ve amplified in loudness. Am I needed? Am I known too well? What am I doing? Am I done just surviving? Am I ready to live? I feel that I am. I so desperately yearn for it. I want to live and not be afraid to live authentically. To create as Sondheim did. To live in the world that I currently inhabit and spark a new creation to inspire us to be better. I want so much to give my heart and voice to the world as I am and let it be. Make me be of service to something bigger than myself and be surrounded by individuals with the same vigorous, benevolent zest for life💕 Make me alive. Miss you Mr. Sondheim💔 Wish you were here Mr. Larson #ticktickboom #company #beingalive #3090 #happybirthday #stephensondheim #jonathanlarson

Stephen Sondheim Theatre marquee lighting September 15th, 2010. 🌹🎭💡 I never officially met Stephen Sondheim, but I was able to bask in his greatness while attending the marquee lighting ceremony in 2010 for the then newly renamed Stephen Sondheim Theatre. I remember him being very gracious and almost embarrassed by the whole thing and made jokes about his name not being melodic enough. I had been in NYC for a year at this point and standing on Broadway in the presence of Stephen Sondheim, Nathan Lane and Patti Lupone was an incredibly powerful moment for me. As a kid, I found purpose when introduced to theatre and Sondheim was a major part of that. Being a closeted queen, I found it hard, if not impossible, to share my feelings and struggles of battening with self identity. Sondheim’s work gave me an outlet for these emotions in a therapeutic way I wasn’t able to find anywhere else. Listening to his scores and relating to his lyrics was my crash course in emotion, wit, humor, and harmony. It’s heartbreaking when one of your idols passes away, but there’s love in knowing the music and the magic will live on and continue to inspire people. Thank you Mr. Sondheim for sharing your gifts with the world. We all bow to your genius. 💜 Fingers crossed the new musical he teased about will still come to fruition. Also, I realize these photos are not the best, but it was 2010 so what can you expect. #stephensondheim #sondheim #stephensondheimtheatre #2010 #marquee #nathanlane #pattilupone #broadway #finishingthehat #moveon #nooneisalone #millersson #alittlepriest #theglamorouslife #giantsinthesky #sidebyside #losingmymind #tragedytommorowcomedytonight #everybodysgotaright #tonight #rosesturn #lastmidnight #soonerorlater #weekendinthecountry #notadaygoesby #everybodysaysdont #beingalive #illdrinktothat

Damn…Sondheim’s passing has totally shaken me (as it has countless others), especially while in the midst of a slow-moving career change… All of his lyrics being passed around articulate much better how we’re collectively feeling than I ever could. One thing I know for certain - I really, really miss sharing his work and influence, academically and professionally. … Fuck. • • • @rmbousel #beingalive #company #sondheim #stephensondheim #broadway #musicaltheatre

Rest In Music, Indeed. I did my best drawing until the ink ran out. Many welcomed you to haunt us while alive, so please consider that an ongoing invitation in death, if you wish and have any say in the matter. Either way, your work will continue to elevate and wrap our very DNA with the lyrics and music you gave us, especially through the structure and poetry of storytelling and sound — which we are blessed to experience and carry on in a rotating world that is worse and better all the time — A place where, somewhere and everywhere, especially tonight, your work breaks and morphs time and space composing a colorful future for hearing, feeling, and understanding that is unique to your own versatile cosmic imprint. Thank you, Kind Sir and Master Musician/Lyricist, for the concentrated passion you gave — a resounding and lasting legacy that will far beyond your own time, intertwined with Broadway forever. The last live musical I saw was Into The Woods (a birthday gift) with Patina Miller, Sutton Foster, and Sierra Boggess — Performances I hope you got to experience. Thank you for that special Birthday. So: Here’s to the Stephen Who Sondheimed. Hears to Stephen Sondheim. Everybody Rise! Everybody Riiiiise! xoJ P.S. Search for Raúl Esparza’s version of “Being Alive” on YT if you’d like to hear my favorite Sondheim song. #stephensondheim #sondheim #beingalive #ladieswholunch #puttingittogether #intothewoods #rim #thankyou #art #artofinstagram #drawing #drawingsofinstagram #ink #pen #black #musicaltheatre #broadway #broadwaysongs #songs #music #legend #tonight #sunday #intothewoods #songwriter #songwriting #legacy
