Stephen Sondheim Slams Lady Gaga's Oscars 2015 'Sound of Music' Performance

Broadway composer Stephen Sondheim, known for Into the Woods, Sweeney Todd, and more, is slamming Lady Gaga‘s performance at the 2015 Oscars.

The 28-year-old entertainer sang a medley from The Sound of Music, and Stephen was less than impressed.

“On the Academy Awards she was a travesty,” Stephen, 84, told The Times. “It was ridiculous, as it would be from any singer who treats that music in semi-operatic style. She had no relationship to what she was singing. What people liked was her versatility.”
