Melissa Errico: Desert Island Sondheim


Prior to her London solo cabaret debut at the Crazy Coqs, Broadway star Melissa Errico spoke to The Stephen Sondheim Society about her favourite Sondheim shows, songs and roles...

1. What are your three favourite Sondheim songs and why?

Unfair question! It’s been hard enough getting my concert down to 16 songs. I’ll answer this but I will be changing my mind by the time I get to the end of my reply.

I love “I Remember” from Evening Primrose because it's a sublime song, a mood song, a trance-like poem in a sense, about memory and what we choose to remember.
