Post Re: Post your favorite songs from each Sondheim show!
The last 5 months have been a crash course on Sondheim, and it's been a blast. (I'd only seen Into the Woods and the Sweeney film before that.)

West Side Story: America, Something's Coming, Jet Song

Forum: Everybody Ought to Have a Maid, Comedy Tonight, Lovely

Company: Another Hundred People, Getting Married Today, Sorry-Grateful

Follies: You're Gonna Love Tomorrow, Could I Leave You, Losing My Mind

Pacific Overtures: Someone In a Tree, A Bowler Hat, Poems

Sweeney Todd: A Little Priest, By The Sea, The Ballad of Sweeney Todd

Sunday in the Park: Color and Light, Children and Art, Move On

Into the Woods: No More, It Takes Two, I Know Things Now

Assassins: Ballad of Guiteau, Ballad of Czolgosz, How I Saved Roosevelt

Passion: not a big fan. Can I say "the orchestrations"?

I know there's a few essential shows I still have to hear!

Sweeney Todd: Epiphany, Ballad of Sweeney Todd, My Friends

That's as far as I've gotten with Sondheim. :shifty: Only one I've seen live is Follies, in concert. It was thrilling.
