LONDON, Oct 23, 2005 (UPI via COMTEX) -- Some of the biggest names in London theater are assembling Sunday to celebrate the 75th birthday of Broadway legend Stephen Sondheim.

Sondheim, who maintains homes in the United States and Britian, will be feted by Barbara Cook, Daniel Evans, Eartha Kitt, Rosemary Ashe and John Barrowman, to name just a few.

There are actually two events happening Sunday, PlayBill noted -- the star-studded event at Drury Lane and "Children Will Listen," a gala at the Theatre Royal, which is also a benefit for ChildLine.

The celebration will include the British debut of "Isn't He Something" from "Bounce," the latest Sondheim musical that has yet to make it to London, Playbill said.
