Not really, according to one of the nominees, Millicent Martin. The show's title is a clue - "Side by Side By Sondheim." It honors Stephen Sondheim, possibly the wittiest. of American composer-lyricists, writer of the words to "West- Side Story," among others. Additionally, according to Martin, "The show is in the form of a revue, which we British have been doing for years and usually rather better than anyone else." There are 27 songs and the four-member cast -- the others are director-pianist-commentator Ned Sherrin and singers Julie McKenzie . and David Kernan -- put on eight shows a week. "It's almost as grueling as opera. There's not much of your day left," Martin said in an interview. The show, which has been running in London for a year, has been nominated for "best musical" and each member of the east has been nominated as j "best featured player." "Millie" Martin, as she is known' to her wide British public, will be happy to be on the winners' list when the awards are announced Sunday nighl, but she won't be heartbroken if she is not. "It's marvelous to be nominated. If I won, that would be an extra award in itself." She is no stranger to honors anyway. They have included Best British TV Personality, the Venice TV Award, the TV Society Award and -- for her part in the movie "Nothing Bjit The Best" with Alan Bates -the Variety Club Award, Best Film Actress. The New'York critics clearly were thinking along the same lines when they gave her such rave reviews for "Sondheim" as "the personality of an Ethel Merman crossed with a Beatrice Lillie," "Redheaded Martin stops .the show," "Millicent Martin sings with style and relish," "She is superb." "Side By Side By Sondheim" might be retitlcd "Back to Front or All' Around with Sondheim." In addition to the New York and London shows, versions are readied for Canada, Ireland, South Africa and Australia. The idea was Kernan's.
