Thought For The Day: Stephen Sondheim

“Ageing is no fun. My memory isn’t sharp. All your energies diminish. You don’t want to make any more friends than you’ve made and they’re all dying anyway. You want to leave the house less. I don’t want to even leave the couch to go to the next room. I rode a bike to Broadway for 20 years. You get to know every pothole in New York. Watch me climb the stairs and you’ll know I’m an old man climbing the stairs. That also happens at the piano.”

Stephen also talks about his hatred of jukebox musicals and Lady Gaga ('a travesty'), and his sex dungeon - contrary to rumour he says he doesn't have one.
