Jun 15, 2020

After an opening statement about #BlackLivesMatter and some items we encourage you to read, Erik and Shannon move on to discussing "Sunday" from Sunday in the Park with George, the first of Sondheim's works with James Lapine. While holding back tears, they argue whether lyrics are poetry, ponder the big questions about art, and try to get at what makes this song transcendent.
