Stephen Sondheim Theatre

Stephen Sondheim, 1986

The producer and theatre owner Sir Cameron Mackintosh has announced that he is planning to rename the Queen’s Theatre in London’s West End as the Stephen Sondheim Theatre. Sondheim, 89, will be the only living artist to have a theatre named in his honor both in London’s West End and on Broadway in New York, where the former Henry Miller’s theatre was named after him in 2010.

Karsh wrote in his book American Legends (1992, Bulfinch Press): “It did not surprise me to learn that he loves intricate games and puzzles. They mirror the subtle complexity of his mind – and his inherent sense of fun.”
