The current Playbill.com DIVA TALK column has a great piece with Bernadette Peters discussing the songs of Stephen Sondheim: “Peters says that Sondheim’s songs are different from other composers “because he writes the music and the lyrics. It’s combined. They’re about very deep and interesting things. I’m always learning about life singing his songs. And I’m bringing myself to experiences that I like experiencing. The positive ones, anyway,” she laughs, “over and over.””
Also, a great review of Marilyn Maye at Feinstein’s.
