No more fitting an honoree could there be for Lincoln Center’s American Songbook Gala than Stephen Sondheim. A composer and lyricist whose work has played its way into ubiquity. West Side Story, Sweeney Todd, Into The Woods, Gypsy and tens more. 

Hence last night, many of New York's biggest names braved the rain to celebrate the icon, -from Andy Cohen and Diane von Furstenberg, to Antoni Porowski and Diane Sawyer, raising over $2 million to support the American Songbook Series. In an all-female tribute celebrating the titan's portfolio of, Ashley Park, Kate Baldwin, Donny Murphy and Petula Clark put on quite the show.
