Dee Hoty singing “Could I Leave You” from Follies.
I have it on good word this is God’s favorite Phyllis.
Stephen Sondheim & John Weidman have written a new version of “Four Black Dragons” and “Next” (both from Pacific Overtures) to refer to the Tohoku earthquake. It will be premiered at the Shinsai: Theaters for Japan benefit on Sunday, March 11. You can read the new version of the songs at Talkin’ Broadway.
Stephen Sondheim singing and playing “Worst Pies in London” during the Sweeney Todd backers audition.
While I don’t get the audio of Merrily at Encores! (I’m so not paying for it) chew on GOD singing “Not A Day Goes By”. Enjoy.
Not one of Sondheim’s finest vocal performances to say the least. :)

Stephen Sondheim sings “With So Little To Be Sure Of” from Anyone Can Whistle.
Remember that article from December announcing that The Dramatists Guild had uncovered a bunch of old reel to reel tapes of their members giving lectures about their work? Well, they’ve launched a podcast from those archives, and the first episode features a Stephen Sondheim talk from the early 1970s — he claims it’s his first — in which he sings a couple of songs that had been cut from A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.
It’s utterly delightful. I’m sure you’ll think so too.
