Comments about this product:
The promo for the DVD boasted rare or unseen footage. That is not accurate; much of what Sondheim said here he has said numerous times in other interviews and workshops. While his insights into his own creative process are always interesting, the performances on the DVD, enjoyable as they were, did not need to take up so much of the time on the DVD. I would have preferred to hear more from Sondheim, himself, on his lyric writing, and to watch him demonstrate his musical thinking on the piano. The one performance I truly enjoyed was Sondheim himself 'singing' the jaded producer's lines in Opening Doors-- nice touch! Bottom line: The DVD over-promises somewhat, and is a bit overpriced for its short length, but well worth having in your musical theater library.
