8 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 1,389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over a three-day period in 1997, Mark Eden Horowitz sat down with Stephen Sondheim in his Turtle Bay home and explored Sondheim's creative process. Beginning with a discussion of his latest work, Passion, and working back in time to Pacific Overtures, this collection of interviews details Sondheim's meticulous work as a composer. Among the topics discussed are Sondheim's approaches to dramatizing with music and lyrics; the creation and use of motifs and thematic material; the use of harmony, melody, and rhythm to reflect character; the structuring of a score; the use of pastiche; and the practical aspects of collaboration. The conversations also include amusing anecdotes about his shows, Sondheim's musings on art and musical theater, reflections on the evolution of theater music, and thoughts on the influences of those who came before him." "In addition, the book includes Sondheim's list of "Songs I Wish I'd Written (At Least in Part)," his reasons behind some of those choices, and messages he received from composers and lyricists whose songs were included on the list. The work is complemented by a comprehensive listing of all of Sondheim's musical works - the most complete discography of Sondheim recordings to date - and publishing information for all his songs and scores, including vocal ranges."--BOOK JACKET

A funny thing happened on the way to the forum by Stephen Sondheim( Book )

35 editions published between 1962 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,041 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a comedy set in ancient Rome, where slaves were fashionable, virgins were regarded as objects to be conquered, and eunuchs were in abundance. The basic plot consists of a slave (Pseudolus) trying to buy his freedom from his owner, Hero, who is the son of Senex (a dirty old man) and Domina (a battle axe). Luckily for Pseudolus, Hero has fallen in love with Philia, a virgin who is waiting for Captain Miles Gloriosus to come and claim her, for she has been sold to him by the proprietor of the House of Pleasure, Marcus Lycus. Hero would give anything for Philia--anything including Pseudolus' freedom. The majority of the play revolves around Pseudolus trying to arrange for Hero and Philia to be together forever. He runs into numerous obstacles, including a hysterical Hysterium, the slave-in-chief, and a bumbling old man, Erronius, who arrives home after being abroad for 20 years searching for his children who were stolen in infancy by pirates. The ending is not entirely predictable, and it would be a shame to give it away."
