Ned Rorem in Nantucket - 15 March, 1985

from The Nantucket Diary of Ned Rorem 1973-1985, page 548:

Been listening to "Sunday in the Park with George". It's good, rather mild, the way an excellent college show is mild and good. But there's something, well, not quite dirty, but mean about Sondheim, and something vain and sophomoric, such as his ideas on art and "the artist."
