Sondheim's lyrical portrait of a traveling actress is such a tour de force of details and witty inner rhymes ...

''Dying by inches every night—
What a glamorous life!
Pulled on by winches to recite—
What a glamorous life! ...

''Sandwiches only,
But she eats what she wants when she wants!
Sometimes it's lonely,
But she meets many handsome gallants! ...

''What if her brooch is only glass,
And her costumes unravel?
What if her coach is second-class:
She at least gets to travel! ...''
