Sondheim at the movies, David Benedict's talk at the BFI: What an interesting evening. I'm now greatly looking to Benedict's book on the master.
So London may be getting a production of Sweeney Todd next year. Sondheim greatly likes the film version of Sweeney, I'm not sure if likes any of the other film adaptions of his stage works.
Meryl Streep is apparently very open to flexibility, she will rehearse the part in many different ways until the creatives are happy. No fixed diva rigid thinking for her.
And most exciting Sondheim is still working on the Bunuel film adaptation. He is finding writing it difficult but act 1 is now complete and he has had "a change of personnel" which I guess means bye bye Ives and hello Jeremy Sams
