Richard Ouzounian at the Toronto Star: [Sondheim on Sondheim is] the closest thing one could possibly imagine to those lethal parties that Mary Tyler Moore used to throw on her 1970s sitcom where mismatched people sat around on uncomfortable furniture, and the minutes flew by like hours…. The guest of honour, Stephen Sondheim, is someone I revere and enjoy, the most talented songwriter of our age and a man of rare wit as well as humanity…. But too much of the time… you find yourself wondering if this is really the work of the greatest man to work in the musical theatre in our time. A lot of it has that flippant “preaching to the converted” quality that, to quote Sondheim, “could drive a person crazy”.
