LONDON 〓 “Queens Theater” changes name to “Stephen Sondheim Theater”


When the “Queens Theater” in London was renovated in December, it was renamed the “Stephen Sondheim Theater”. The “Queens Theater” is a theater on Shaftesbury Avenue in Soho, central London, opened in 1907. Since the premiere of the popular musical “Les Miserables” in 1985, long-run performances have continued. In 2010, “Henry Miller’s Theater” on Broadway in the United States has also been renamed “Stephen Sondheim Theater”.

Sondheim is 89 years old, born in New York. At the age of 27, he was featured in the lyrics of the musical “West Side Story” and was spotlighted. Since then, he has been contributing to the US musical scene for over half a century. His five works such as “Company”, “Into the Woods”, and “Sweeney Todd” won the Tony award’s music award. He also won a special award in 2008. The Tony Award has been won eight times in all, the highest number of awards for composers. In addition, he has won one Academy Award, eight Grammy Awards, one Pulitzer Prize and one Lawrence Olivier Award.
