Post Forgive me for the stupid question but...
...Why is West Side Story under Sondheim? Wasn't it written by Bernstein? O.o

Sondheim did the lyrics. Bernstein did the music.

Hope that helps.

Ah thanks. That puzzled me. I thought he was too young to have written any of it.

Here's a Bernstein website for West Side Story;

Hope I've been of some help.

I do think it's strange people almost give Sondheim more credit when in other cases the lyricist could almost be unheard off.
