Stephen Sondheim - Personal Life

Personal Life

Sondheim has been described as being extremely introverted, a largely solitary figure. He has stated that he doesn't believe in marriage. He came out as a homosexual in the 1980s and did not live with a partner until he was 61. This was Peter Jones, a dramatist; they lived together for several years, until 1999. In an interview with Frank Rich, Sondheim said that "the outsider feeling – somebody who people want to both kiss and kill – occurred quite early in my life.'"

    For a moment, the first idea . . . It satisfies
    Belief in an immaculate beginning
    And sends us, winged by an unconscious will,
    To an immaculate end. We move between these points:
