All Aboard the Meme Express – Saturday, March 21, 2009

Stephen Sondheim, American composer, lyricist, and Pulitzer Prize winner (1984), was born on March 22, 1930.

One of Stephen Sondheim’s most memorable songs is “Send in the Clowns,” which he composed as part of the 1973 Broadway musical A Little Night Music. The beloved ballad has been recorded by many popular artists, including Shirley Bassey, Judy Collins, Glynis Johns, Frank Sinatra, Barbra Steisand and others.

Here is “Send in the Clowns,” as performed in 1990 at the New York Opera by Sally Ann Howes with George Lee Andrews.
