Being Alive

Being Alive

"Being Alive" is a song from the Broadway musical, Company. It was written by Stephen Sondheim. The song is the ultimate song sung by the main character, Robert in the second act.

"Being Alive" holds the rare honour of a song written by Sondheim that has become popular outside its original musical setting, and although written for a male part is frequently performed by women — notably (amongst others) Bernadette Peters, Patti LuPone and Ute Lemper in concerts and on albums. It is arguably the finest example of a Sondheim ballad.
