When Stephen Sondheim was 10 years old, he met Oscar Hammerstein II, who became a mentor and surrogate father to him. Hammerstein introduced young Sondheim to the theatre, encouraged him to write, and helped him improve what he had written. In this episode, we look at the lasting influence that Hammerstein has had on Sondheim’s life and career.
