Stephen Sondheim Pans Lady Gaga's Oscars Performance: "She Was a Travesty"

Stephen Sondheim's partner might "crawl a mile" to see Lady Gaga perform, but the 84-year-old veteran composer isn't so impressed. Sondheim panned Gaga's The Sound of Music medley performance at the Oscars, speaking to The Times in an article that ran last week. Though his 36-year-old partner Jeff Romley might be gaga for Gaga, Sondheim said he "does not share his taste for contemporary pop music."
