*** ''Evening Primrose'' doesn't sound like it would be, but after watching it, you will feel uncomfortable. Because it turns out, [[spoiler: the mannequins in department stores are murdered and well-preserved people...]] And while it is one of his lesser known works, it is now considered a particular gem in his career.

* VindicatedByHistory: Sondheim's lyrics were always well-received, but his music often received lukewarm reviews from critics who thought his songs were lacking in hummable melodies, and that his failure to produce more than one BreakawayPopHit was due to his failings as a composer. Today he's usually admired equally for his words and his music.

*** And the main [[WestSideStory competitor]] for "most famous" is a retelling of ''Romeo and Juliet''. You know, teenaged star-crossed lovers, fatal miscommunication, gang violence... what's not to love?

*** Then there's ''Bounce,'' which was initially a buddy comedy. It wasn't received all that well. Then it was re-tooled as ''Road Show,'' and was much darker, and received a better reception.
