On Wednesday (22 March 2017), two of our greatest living musical theatre composers, Andrew Lloyd Webber (69) and Stephen Sondheim (87) both had birthdays. Fellow multi award-winning composer and #StageFave Lin-Manuel Miranda celebrated by throwing a party on Twitter and causing a viral sensation. We invite you to the #SondWebParty here!
(Lin-Manuel and Andrew Lloyd Webber have also joined up for #RedNoseDay today as part of Comic Relief's Stephen Hawkings video - watch that here!)
First some of Lin-Manuel's own tweets that got the party started...
Happy birthday, Sondheim.— Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) March 22, 2017
