In cinema, he contributed tunes for Reds and Dick Tracy.
Sondheim has won multiple Tony and Grammy awards, an Oscar, and a Pulitzer Prize. To honor his 80th birthday, the Henry Miller’s Theatre was renamed the Stephen Sondheim Theatre in 2010. On November 1st, New York will bestow the city’s highest honor to the legendary composer for career achievement in the Arts.
