Sondheim And Webber: Separated At Birth?

Sondheim And Webber: Separated At Birth?

Incredible as it may sound, March 22 is the day that two of modern musical theatre's most renowned living composers were born.

That's right, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Stephen Sondheim share a birthday.

Although, let it be known that while Sir Andrew turns 60 today, the ever remarkable man who shares my first name is 78.

To see what brought Webber and Sondheim together, click here for an amusing salute to Cameron Mackintosh.

As if that weren't enough, my own blood sister (I'm now blessed with another three "adopted" sisters) celebrates her birthday today as well.

Happy birthdays all around!

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).

Steve, we may not be biological siblings, but I believe that we were always meant to be brother and sister. It just took awhile for us to find each other. And I'm so glad we did!

Esther, thank goodness for adoption, right?

What's that old saying.... "You can choose your friends, but not your relatives"?!

I'm glad we were able to turn that one on its head!
