Stephen Sondheim is now 80 years old and, by common consent, the most remarkable artist to have devoted his creative energies to the form we call the Broadway musical over the past half-century. Justifiably, the theatrical world has spent much of the past year celebrating his achievements in a variety of ways: a string of gala all-Sondheim concerts; a musical revue (Sondheim on Sondheim); a Broadway theater renamed for him; endless feature articles, interviews, and public forums—pretty much everything except christening an ocean liner the S.S. S. Sondheim.
