Total runtime 80min

Stephen Sondheim’s 1957 Broadway debut West Side Story became a 10-Oscar®-winning triumph, and is now being remade by Steven Spielberg. From Gypsy to Into the Woods via Sweeney Todd, numerous other musicals by Broadway’s leading musical dramatist have transferred to the big screen. David Benedict, Sondheim’s biographer, investigates the highs and lows of Sondheim on screen and asks what makes a movie adaptation work.
