Sondheim free pdf In high school, Stephen Sondheim put a script in front of his friend and mentor Oscar Hammerstein. "I want you to treat this as if it were a script that just came across your desk," Sondheim told the older man."In that case, it's the worst thing I ever read."So Stephen Sondheim kept writing. He kept composing and in time he became the greatest composer Broadway had ever seen. Beginning with the opening night of the classic musical "West Side Story" in 1957, and tracing Stephen's life from boyhood to his struggles as an up and coming Broadway composer/lyricist to a musical theater legend, Susan Rubin's "Putting It Together" draws readers into the passionate, tumultuous, and musical world of Stephen Sondheim.
