“What More Do I Need?” – Saturday Night
Music and Lyrics: Stephen Sondheim
This little-known Sondheim gem from a musical about dateless bachelors shows how one’s perspective on life changes after a successful date. Based on the play Front Porch in Flatbush, the musical offers everyone a gracious living fantasy. On this day in 1974, Kalamazoo College in Michigan declared a class-free “Day of Gracious Living” which has become a yearly tradition. Take this as a prompt to have your own work-free day today. What more excuse do you need?
