He died the way he lived. Brilliantly.
A brilliant ending!
Erica, if you haven't see TICK...TICK...BOOM on Netflix. Sondheim plays a significant role in Jonathan Larsen's growth as an artist. I saw RENT six times and it always slayed me. The film had the wrong director [Chris Columbus]; it needed someone who could be more gritty.
Loved this piece!
My 79-year-old conspiracy-minded pa just offed himself by catching COVID-19. Culturally, we do a terrible job of preparing people to face the end of their own life. It's coming at some point regardless. I try to focus on the highest quality of life between now and then, and on achieving something approaching wisdom if time remains. Well wishes to you and great kvetching.
Great column - Bravo to you
