musical career 1954 81 He reprints the lyrics and offers side remarks as to what was going on at the times these shows were composed This period Defying Shadows (Rising Shadows embraces WEST SIDE STORY for which he wrote the lyrics also A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM words and music both ditto that daring pair COMPANY and FOLLIES ca 1970 Also in this volume are A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC PACIFIC OVERTURES and others To style this generous coffee table ish book in part Grudges Whines and Anecdotes may have been a little too self deprecating but in so doing Sondheim did grant himself leave to digress which he does upon occasion Never mindven the digressions are worthwhile After reading FINISHING THE HAT you realize you needn t have bothered with about two thirds of the writing by critics and journalists in other books and media who are not Stephen Sondheim Followed by LOOK I MADE A HAT I do realize that the arlier book in seuence is called FINISHING THE HAT while the latter one called LOOK I MADE A HAT 1981 2011 and that HAT while the latter one is LOOK I MADE A HAT 1981 2011 and that d make better sense if the titles had been switched but since this is Stephen Sondheim I m of no mind to uibble Note If buying new the canny consumer can usually get a discount if the two vols are purchased simultaneouslyPhoto Stephen Sondheim and Leonard Bernstein 1955 Look I m simultaneouslyPhoto Stephen Sondheim and Leonard Bernstein 1955 Look I m music theater buff and a Sondheim freak So it was preordained that I would love this book Actually I was xpecting to find it redundant if not nostalgia inducing inasmuch as I have long owned and adored copies of his scores and libretti and near memorized recordings of Tangled Webs (The Black Jewels, every Sondheim show save the unloveable mess that is Road Show about which you can read my reviewlsewhere on Goodreads However I can confidently tell you that ANYbody with A Fairly Honourable Defeat even a PASSing interest in theater would delight in reading this book It kicks off with anxtended and fascinating ssay on what distinguishes song lyrics from poetry proceeds chronologically through Sondheim s writings including lyrics to cut and rewritten songs from the chamber piece Saturday Night it took than 50 years to see produced through to 1981 s Merrily We Roll Along Unlike the Golden Age collections of lyrics dited by Robert Kimball Sondheim s is heavily interlarded with both contextualizing plot synopses he thanks the Elisabeth Shue 135 Success Facts - Everything You Need to Know about Elisabeth Shue efforts of his liner notes authors for their ahem inspiration and Sondheim s own annotations witticisms and criticisms It is the latter of these that make this such an invaluable book it s chock full of insight not just to Sondheim s workthic but to his attitudes about lyric writing in generalBut wait there s In addition to collecting lyrics from thirteen different shows Finishing the Hat is full of great The Man Without a Face examples that illustrate his principles from various writers including Dorothy Parker as well as constructively critical assessments of his professional predecessors Oscar Hammerstein Noel Coward Alan Jay Lerner Ira Gershwin Frank Loessert al Best of all the book is rich with photostats of handwritten arly drafts and you can thereby see the master at work it s all about filling the margins with a brainstormed thesaurus of useable phrases and coupletsSondheim makes no bones about being both opinionated and rigid when it comes to the subject of lyric writing I ve already written about this in the comments to GoodReader Trevor s typically xcellent review of Jay Parini s Why Poetry Matters In the context of Parini Trevor uotedRoyal Society of Literature Fellow and OBE Don Paterson s distinction between poetry and song lyrics which I found to dovetail uite nicely with Sondheim s opinionsFrom pp xvii xviii of the Introduction Sondheim writesMusical theater Lyrics Gone (Gone, even poetic ones are not. For years to come Accompanying Sondheim’s sparkling writing are behind the scenes photographs fromach production along with handwritten music and lyrics from the songwriter’s personal collection Penetrating and surprising poignant funny and sometimes provocative Finishing the Hat is not only an informative look at the art and craft of lyric writing it is a history of the theater that belongs on the same literary shelf as Moss Hart’s Act One and Arthur Miller’s Timebends It is also a book that will leave you humming the final bars of Merrily We Roll Along while agerly anticipating the next volume which begins with the opening lines of Sunday in the Park with George. Finishing the Hat Collected Lyrics 1954 1981 With Attendant Comments Principles Heresies Grudges Whines and AnecdotesA Bow for Mr SondheimStephen Sondheim Will probably forever be regarded as the finest lyricist the musical stage has known with apologies to librettist W S Gilbert or Gilbert and Sullivan fame He has always taken on stories that ncourage no force the audience to relate to his ideas whether that be in the All Seated on the Ground early stages of his career with the magnum opus West Side Story or with the subseuent Gypsy Pacific Overtures Follies Sundays in the Park with George Company Sweeney Todd A Little Night Musictc But while most Untitled. everyone knows the lyrics to his large number of hits few of us know the secrets or gossip or the lyricists real feelings aboutach of his ventures until now This book is a very well written compendium of the lyrics in Wiring every phase of their being notes ideas misjudgments and personal responses to the shows and the people involved with them Sondheim is brilliant not only at what he has done for a living but also as a thinker and philosopher and pundit Reading this book as opposed to scanning this book opens windows of insight into the career and the personality of one of America s treasures There is so much tonjoy about this book that it will take several readings to absorb it all It is a welcome addition to the libraries of all those who care about the stage musicals that are one of the few uniue offerings of this country to the world of music Grady Harp I m fascinated by people who love their work and take it seriously so Against All Odds even if I wasn t a musicals fan I probably would venjoyed this book The subtitle describes it pretty well this is a collection of Sondheim s lyrics from the first half of his career along with his commentary about the process of writing the lyrics and creating the shows He also gives uncensored opinions on other lyricists work which are saved from seeming brutal by their obvious sincerity and by the fact that he is just as hard on himself Only very occasionally does he veer into seeming a bit spiteful and then mostly about criticsThis offers fascinating insight into the process of writing lyrics and the theatre world I read Jingling Daddys Bells BDSM Menage every bit of commentaryven that about shows I m not familiar with and I can t wait for the second volume Look I Made a Hat Collected Lyrics 1981 2011 With Attendant Comments Amplifications Dogmas Harangues Wafflings Diversions and Anecdotes What does it mean to make art Does the artist create and nurture his work or does it feed on him consuming his life until he is forever finishing the hat Paging through Stephen Sondheim s recent memoircommentaryanthology I couldn t help wonderingIn his book Sondheim discusses the principles and heresies of lyric composition at the level of a technical master analyzing himself and his deceased contemporaries with all the precision of his own best lyrics He writes as he is a curmudgeonly veteran of the stage who spares nothing and no one from criticism Having performed Sondheim musicals on the stage I am familiar with the challenge his work presents to performers and audiences but it was only by reading Sondheim s own meticulous notes that I discovered an inkling of his true genius His lyrics are simple The DOS even conversational andlaborate Against All Odds each syllable and consonant contending with and complimenting the score By some strange alchemy Sondheim reconciles the maxims Less is and God is in the details And yet these clear true beautiful lyrics are from a man with a bleak loveless childhood a gay man who has never sustained a long term relationship in his 20 plus years out of the closet The book offers no bridge to that gapxcept to invite the conclusion that Sondheim like George of Sunday in the Park is always finishing the hat distracted from real life by the art he draws it from All in all a fascinating read that like its author both illuminates and fascinates I mean yeah I don t know how lse to rate this It s on a totally different scale than a novel or whatever If you are interested in musical theater in general and in Sondheim in particular then obviously this book is for you But also if you are interested in learning about how a writer who is EXTREMELY GOOD At What He Does Actually Does What He Does You what he does actually does what he does you want to look at this There is tons of good writing advice packed in here and a lot of fascinating critical self dissection along the lines of that Community post mortem Dan Harmon did in the AV Club There are a bunch of did in the AV Club There are a bunch of where Sondheim points out gregious Treasons, Stratagems, And Spoils errors in his work In time honored and universally cherished songs Songs you love and know by heart And he points out problems you probably neverven noticed and will now not be able to unsee But for Payment Due every I never should have done that and I can t believe that at the time I couldn t think of a better way to finish that line moment there is a moment where he points to something and says See what I did there That s really good And it s great It s totallyntertaining and fascinating and useful Overall this is a great lesson in the importance of constraints in writing Because man does he have to work with constraints It has to not only make sense but it has to rhyme And the part at the beginning where he talks about "The Different Kinds Of "different kinds of and why only perfect rhymes matter was fascinating and made me want to re Vampireville (Vampire Kisses, evaluate the lyrics of songwriters who we consider to be really good lyricists Because maybe there is a lost art thing happening there in popular music Maybe AND also about constraints there are a number ofxamples where some of the best songs of his career were 3rd or 4th drafts or last minute additions to the show written in hotel rooms in Boston The show wasn t working he needed to fix it It s not done until it s done The amount of cut songs in here is mind blowing He just writes and writes and writes and keeps going until it s done and then still keeps going after it s done It s really inspiring I haven t read the whole book I m skipping around from show to show and Pirate of the Pacific (Doc Savage, enjoying it but this was at 5 stars after the first few sections I read Company A Little Night Music in my caseReally really looking forward to the 2nd volume of this so we can dig into Assassins and the second acts of Sunday In the Park With George and Into the Woods about which I have Opinions so I cannot wait to see how they mesh and clash with His opinions When I first heard about this book I wasn t tooxcited For some reason I was under the impression that it was just a collection of the lyrics Nice to have but really not that necessary since ahem I already know them all by heart I dutifully ordered the book from the library though this is Sondheim we re Stephen Sondheim has won seven Tonys an Academy Award seven Grammys a Pulitzer Prize and the Kennedy Center Honors His career has spanned than half a century his lyrics have become synonymous with musical theater and popular culture and in Finishing the Hat titled after perhaps his most autobiographical song from Sunday in the Park with George Sondheim has not only collected his lyrics for the first time he is giving readers a rare personal look into his life as well as his remarkable productionsAlong with the lyrics for all of his musicals from 1954 to 1981 including West Side Story Company Follies A Little Night Music and Sweeney Todd Sondheim treats us to never before pub. Alking about after all When it came in and I took a closer look at it I realized how wrong I d been and immediately sat down and started reading This is the book Sondheim fans have been waiting for and it was a great great pleasure to read it Far from being just the lyrics the book has a wealth of material about the songs the productions and musical theater in generalIncluded are a brief preface in which Sondheim outlines his mantra for lyric writing a general introduction and a short The Rich and the Profane (Lovejoy, essay on rhyme After the introductory materials come the lyrics for all the sho I poked away at this for years dipping in and out before finally finishing this week Sheer genius Can t wait to crack Volume 2 There is nobody like Sondheim Much as I love Cole Porter and the Rogers and Hart and Rogers and Hammerstein musicals it s Sondheim who sings to meThis collection of lyrics to his musicals from West Side Story in 1957 to Merrily We Roll Along in 1981 isnlightening Sondheim introduces Turbulence each show includes the lyrics to songs that were cut andxplains the dynamics between him and the producer director writer of the book choreographer and composer if he was writing only the lyrics as in West Side Story Apparently Jerome Robbins was the strongest character working on that show and Tropical Bioproductivity even Leonard Bernstein would sneak out to a bar and line up shots of whisky when Robbins went on a rampageSondheim is apparently known for writing beautiful songs for failed musicals such as Merrily We Roll Along which lasted only 16 performances and Anyone Can Whistle which lasted 9 despite its starring Angela Landsbury and Lee Remick But of course others werenormous hits like Gypsy A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and Company My favorite Sondheim show A Little Night Music was made into a deplorably weak movie which is unfortunate as most people don t get a chance to see the show on the stageThe title Finishing the Hat is taken from Sunday in the Park With George which Sondheim discusses in the second of his books of annotated lyrics Look I Made a Hat which covers 1981 2011 So much of what I could say in a review of Sondheim s lovely book of lyrics Finishing the Hat is touched upon by singersongwriter Paul Simon in an article he wrote for The New York Times will only add my own thoughts which are wordy because I love the man When I was a freshman in my rural Iowa high school I took vocal lessons with a local college instructor Hollis Dobref who later went on to work with Jason Smith to develop up and coming jazz artists at The School for Music Vocations The school didn t start until 1991 when I was off in college 70 miles away I didn t have a lot of musical knowledge outside of classical band and choral stuff we sang my family s Ella Fitzgerald collection and late 70s and 80s radio music My first song with Hollis was I Remember Sky from Stephen Sondheim s TV musical Evening PrimroseI was fascinated by the images the dark and apocalyptic feel of the lyricsI remember leavesGreen as spearmintCrisp as paperI remember treesBare as coat racksSpread like broken umbrellasI went to our small high school library I graduated in a class of less than a hundred but found almost nothing on Sondheim I went to our miniscule Matilda J Gibson Memorial Library our town population had at one point topped 8000 but has since been hovering in the low 7000s and found albums of A Little Night Music Gypsy West Side Story and Sweeney Todd Then I was hooked I went to our community college library which was run by my foster mom and found ven A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum Company FolliesI never found "OUT MUCH ABOUT EVENING PRIMROSE UNTIL "much about Evening Primrose until I hid my love of Sondheim s complex cerebral music and lyrics in small town Iowa I was scared closeted and sill primarily addicted to playsThis book his major lyrics up to 1984 was a gift for Christmas it s also a clear indication that I have left my self imposed hiding I sat and listened to many recordings as I read the lyrics thoughts and anecdotes Sondheim is only snippy and gossipy once and he schews criticizing living lyricists Finishing the Hat is only a partial picture he still has to cover 1984 on and there are several small songs I hope he includes one offs like I Never Do Anything Twice and the music from the film Dick Tracy Also you cannot hear his artistic and odd stirring composition unless you do what I did curling up with the book and taking it slow listening to several cast recordings and artist albums Wow that was self indulgent and gay of meI will say this about Sondheim s supposed lack of heart and hummable tunes I fell in love with the complexity the intricacy of his lyrics I loved that you had to listen to the music several times to understand the structure My friends will tell you I simply live for being Die Postmoderne Konstellation exposed to intellectually andmotionally challenging ideas I have always loved things that combine humor with thought provoking ideas and I think very few artists in any medium do that as well as SondheimOtherwise I agree with Paul Simon Sondheim has challenged and changed the modern theatrical landscape for the better I agree with Broadway star Mandy Patinkin that Sondheim may well be the Shakespeare of our age I also agree with Simon when he says a simple lyric or clich after a complex lyric or image may help the audience breathe this is something Sondheim just does Not Do Sondheim Piles On Ideas And do Sondheim piles on ideas and and witty turns of phrase and intricate rhymes one after the other not allowing his audience to breathe In fact have been holding my breath since that day in 1984 I first met his workI ll include the lyrics to A Little Priest from Sweeney Todd For the two people who don t know the story Victorian barber Todd has just murdered a man blackmailing him He s also ravaged with fury plotting revenge on the world for the injustices he faced He plans to kill again His landlady the besotted pie seller Mrs Lovett has a brilliant idea for getting rid of Todd s bodiesMRS LOVETTSeems a downright shameTODD ShameLOVETTSeems an awful wasteSuch a nice plump frameWot s is name hasHadHasNor it can t be tracedBus ness needs a liftDebts to be rasedThink of it as thriftAs a giftIf you get my driftNoSeems an awful wasteI mean with the price of meatWhat it isWhen you get itIf you get itTODD HAHLOVETTGood you got itTake for instance Mrs Mooney and her pie shopBus ness never better using only pussycats and toastAnd a pussy s good for maybe six or seven at the mostAnd I m sure they can t s good for maybe six or seven at the mostAnd I m sure they can t as far as tasteSimultaneouslyTODDMrs Lovett what a charming notionLOVETTWell it does seem Lished songs from ach show songs that were cut or discarded before seeing the light of day He discusses his relationship with his mentor Oscar Hammerstein II and his collaborations with Ulysses and the Trojan War extraordinary talents such as Leonard Bernstein Arthur Laurents Ethel Merman Richard Rodgers Angela Lansbury Harold Prince and a panoply of others The anecdotes filled with history pointed observations and intimate details transport us back to a time when theater was a major pillar of American culture Best of all Sondheim appraises his work and dissects his lyrics as well as those of others offering unparalleled insights into songwriting that will be studied by fans and aspiring songwriters.
