Henry Miller's Theater to don moniker of legit icon

The former Henry Miller’s Theater on West 43rd Street now carries the name of the composer of “Company,” “Sweeney Todd” and other great tuners.

“I’m deeply embarrassed,” Stephen Sondheim told a throng of well-wishers on the street. “I’ve always hated my last name. It just doesn’t sing.”

Nathan Lane summed it up best: “This is so much more moving to christen a theater the Stephen Sondheim as opposed to the British Petroleum Playhouse.”
