Sunday Night Sondheim – Desperate Housewives


Filmed segment featuring the main cast of Desperate Housewives naming their “favorite” Stephen Sondheim song, complete with Mary Alice voice-over and even a visit from the deceased Martha Hueber. Bree Van De Kamp’s choice gets an especially good reaction from the already excited crowd.

Creator Marc Cherry is a big fan of musical theater composer Stephen Sondheim, and Desperate Housewives episode titles all come from Sondheim song titles or lyrics.

Shown at Stephen Sondheim’s 75th Birthday Concert on July 8, 2005 at the Hollywood Bowl in LA.
