If you love Sondheim, you'll be thrilled with this purchase! It's a wonderful compilation of his hit songs from past shows, movies or other ventures. The CD's also features a booklet with the words, so if you are unfamiliar and want to follow along, you can. This is also a great way to expose a young thespian to Sondheim.
