Some studies suggest a link between exposure to light at night, such as working the night shift, to diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That's not proof that nighttime light exposure causes these conditions; nor is it clear why it could be bad for us.
While light of any kind can suppress the secretion of melatonin, blue light at night does so more powerfully. Harvard researchers and their colleagues conducted an experiment comparing the effects of 6.5 hours of exposure to blue light to exposure to green light of comparable brightness. The blue light suppressed melatonin for about twice as long as the green light and shifted circadian rhythms by twice as much (3 hours vs. 1.5 hours).
Stephen Sondheim met Harold Prince in 1970 with Company, and the future course of the American musical theatre was immediately set. Well, not exactly; Sondheim and Prince apparently met in 1949, at the opening night performance of South Pacific. Which was immediately recognized as one of the most exhilarating opening nights in Broadway history, though not due to the presence of the 21-year-old future director and the 19-year-old future composer. The pair quickly became colleagues. Sondheim watched as Prince moved up from office assistant (at George Abbott's office) to assistant stage manager (on George Abbott musicals) and finally to full-fledged Tony-Award producer (of George Abbott musicals). When Sondheim's first musical as a lyricist lost its producer, Prince stepped in to co-produce West Side Story (1957). When Sondheim's first musical as a composer-lyricist lost its producer, Prince stepped in to produce A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (1962). When the musical that would ultimately be produced in 1971 as Follies lost its producer, Prince picked that one up as well. Sondheim's work was interrupted, though, so he could first join Prince for Company. 59ce067264
