We are presently assembling Everything Sondheim’s third — and now final — print issue. Current subscriber should receive their copy in late August. We plan to continue posting fresh content on this website until Dec. 31, 2017. That’s as far as we are able to go. Of course, articles here will continue to be available beyond that date, but no more new content is planned.
New subscriptions are no longer being accepted. Individuals who subscribed for one year will have had their order fulfilled — the original offer was for two print issues (three will have been sent) plus yearlong access to this website’s premium content. In December we hope to refund $20 to anyone who subscribed for a second year.
After two years of launching and promoting Everything Sondheim, we have decided that our project is not sustainable, so we intend to close up shop as gracefully as possible. Our ability to promote the website and publication has been impeded by a limited budget. Many of our writers and editors have worked as unpaid volunteers since early 2016.
If you are a two-year subscriber who doesn’t want a refund, please email me at rpender@EverythingSondheim.org. We will incur expenses as we shut down operations, and we’ll be grateful for funds we can use for that purpose.
All of us who have labored to establish Everything Sondheim (and who edited and produced The Sondheim Review before that) are mourning this decision. We, like all who subscribed or visited this site, are great admirers of Stephen Sondheim, and we regret that this platform for exploring his work must be discontinued.
Additionally, there is a slim possibility that EverythingSondheim.org could continue to exist beyond the end of 2017 if a willing individual or an organization were to come forward interested in carrying on. If you wish to support Everything Sondheim’s possible future, a tax-deductible contribution of $15-$25 via Fractured Atlas will be gratefully received.
And if you interested in picking up where we are leaving off, please email me at rpender@EverythingSondheim.org
