This roundtable took place in the Mary Rodgers Room at the Dramatists Guild of America on October 9, 2018. At the last minute, Stephen Sondheim could not join the panelists in person, so he sent his questions to be read aloud. After this transcript was made, Mr. Sondheim and the panelists included a few additional remarks. The panelists were chosen by Mr. Sondheim to cover most of the predominate styles of contemporary lyric writing as well as a playwright who writes in rhyming verse.
