Look, I Made a Hat by Stephen Sondheim

If you read last year’s Finishing the Hat, the first volume of Sondheim’s work, I’m pretty sure I won’t have to talk you into this one. This time around, Sondheim talks about how he composed the lyrics for more recent musicals like Sundays in the Park with George and Into the Woods. Even those who aren’t Sondheim fans, or fans of musicals in general, will find a lot to reflect on in Sondheim’s analysis and sometimes outright criticism of his own work. A good song is one thing—but how it furthers the work as a whole is Sondheim’s chief criterion.
