"I'll just add that I think another reason Sondheim didn't write a letter about the Fish OKLAHOMA, no matter what he thought about it, is that no matter how much he respects the show, he doesn't love it as he always has loved PORGY, since he first saw it as an adolescent."

Yes, I think you're right about that, and I think he was deeply offended by the fact that, in that NY Times piece, those interviewed were, from one perspective, expressing their disrespect for the work of this masterpiece's original creators. The piece read to me as if Sondheim was defending the integrity of those geniuses, and the work of DuBose Heyward in particular.
