Into the Woods

"The King and I?" Another shot in the dark!

I think this is from Into The Woods...and that's all I know

Sondheim, if I get points for spelling. :-)

Tasha, I'm going grocery shopping (being 'sponsible :-), so here's your chance!

Carol said...

I had a minute between meetings. Stephen Sondheim is the correct spelling (obviously looking for a whim point)!

Harmony said...

What stinks is that I don't even remember lyrics from musicals I've seen!

Carol said...

Didn't type quickly enough - foiled again!

So, a try for other points. Don't you think it is odd that he could do "Into the Woods" and then do Assassins?

Or is it odd that Into the Woods fits into a repertoire that includes Sweeny Todd, Assassins, Wise Guys?

Of course then there's two musicals he's done that have been in this year's MMM - West Side Story, Gypsy.

4 points to Melissa
2 whim points for Melissa

1 spelling point for Harmony

2 points to Carol for pointing out some of the ironies in Sondheim's body of work.
1 more point for using your "between meetings" moment to check in here (instead of getting a snack or something)

Carol said...

Let me see - snacks or MMM Lightening Rounds? I think I am too competitive or maybe I just fit in here!
