The wild triumph of Sondheim and those associated with him has been a willingness to risk unsettling material in a pleasure-zone like Broadway - again and again!

What might be interesting to calculate is which of his shows has been revived the most often across the globe, even after having done poorly in an original run.

I suspect that, of the commercial "failures", Merrily might be the most successful of his career? Certainly it rates as a towering work of art, a questing after the deepest values of human existence.
