“Someone in a Tree” – Pacific Overtures

Music and Lyrics: Stephen Sondheim

Master wordsmith and theatre legend Stephen Sondheim was born on this day in 1930.  This musical about the westernization of the very traditional Japan is definitely one of his least accessible shows.  Of all the songs he has written however, this is his favorite, and thus in honor of the prolific composer on his birthday.
