Stephen Sondheim net worth: Stephen Sondheim is an American composer and lyricist who has a net worth of $20 million. Due to his uncommon ability and devoted work both as a composer as well as a lyricist, Sondheim has created wonderful musical works, including A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, Sunday in the Park with George and Into the Woods. Stephen is also the man behind the lyrics of West Side Story and Gypsy. As well as writing lyrics for songs, Sondheim wrote content for movies like the 1981 Warren Beatty movie Reds, for which he created the song “Goodbye For Now”. Being the writer of all these invaluable contributions to musical theater, Sondheim is the winner of an Academy Award, eight Tony Awards including the Special Tony Award for Life Achievement in the Theater, multiple Grammy Awards, a Pulitzer Prize and the Laurence Olivier Award. The period from 1973 to 1981 marks another aspect of Sondheim’s career, as a president of the Dramatists Guild. In honor of his 80th birthday, on September 15th 2010, the Henry Miller’s Theater was renamed the Stephen Sondheim Theater, while BBC staged a concert in his honor.

#Quote
1[on 'Assassins'] Every time I saw a reference to the show as singing, dancing assassins, it would just piss me off, pardon the expression. Sing they do, but when they dance they're not happy about it. Nobody at the end of the show should feel that we have been excusing or sentimentalizing these people. We're examining the system that causes these horrors. The U.S. Constitution guarantees the pursuit of happiness. It doesn't guarantee the happiness. That's the difference. These are people who feel they've been cheated of their happiness, each one in a different way.
2[observation, 2014] How much effect does the theatre have on life? In the '20s, the theatre had an effect on public thinking. I think today, by the time a show gets onstage, the idea has already passed. Theatre is now a cottage industry and a cottage entertainment. It doesn't have much influence.
3I want people to enjoy what I write. I'm a product of Broadway, no matter how pretentious anybody thinks what I write is. I'm not writing for myself. I'm writing to entertain, to make people laugh and cry and think. I want as big an audience as possible.
4Oscar Hammerstein really believed that there was 'A bright golden haze in the meadow'. I never have.
5For those of you who have not had the pleasure of hearing my voice before, I tend to sing very loud, often off-pitch, and always write in keys that are just out of my range.
6My mother had a lot of pretensions. One of them that she picked up from some of her tonier friends was 'luncheon' which always struck me as a screamingly funny word. 'I'm having a luncheon at 21' she would say. I think 'lunch' is one of the funniest words in the world. That's one of the reasons I used it.
7On stage, generally speaking, the story is stopped or held back by songs, because that's the convention. Audiences enjoy the song and the singer, that's the point. Static action - if that's not an oxymoron - is accepted. It's what writer Burt Shevelove used to call "savouring the moment". That's a very tricky business on film. It's fine if the songs are presentational, as in a Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers-style movie where you watch them for the fun of it, but not with storytelling songs. When the song is part of the action and working as dialogue, even two minutes is way too long.
8My idea of heaven is not writing.
