Despite what I've said, in fairness I'd go along with most of that, John. Sondheim's music, love it or loathe it (guess which is me), has a good degree of sophistication about it, for example. But I've sat few quite a number of shows where I wish I'd had earplugs, or where I've squirmed and cringed at the doggerel, at the cheesiness, at the archness, at the glamour-over-content of it all. Some people like that kind of thing, but give me Schubert or Britten any day.
