Stephen Sondheim Trashes Lady Gaga’s Oscars ‘Sound of Music’ Tribute


Legendary composer Stephen Sondheim spoke to the UK’s Times of London recently and had nothing good to say about Lady Gaga’s recent Sound of Music tribute during the 2015 Oscars broadcast.

“On the Academy Awards she was a travesty,” Sondheim said of Gaga. “It was ridiculous, as it would be from any singer who treats music in that semi-operatic style. She has no relationship to what she was singing. What people liked was her versatility.”

Sondheim is most well known for his work on several hit musicals, including Into the Woods, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd and Company.
