      Brilliant puzzle! I'm glad I remembered seeing the title FINISHINGTHEHAT
      39A FINISHINGTHEHATSondheim book subtitled "Collected Lyrics with Attendant Comments, Principles, Heresies, Grudges, Whines and Anecdotes" or a hint to 1-Across, 23-Across, 51-Across, and 71-Across
      referenced in a memorial essay or two! Clever theme and the references throughout to Sondheim and musical theater in general were so much fun!

        My mom helped me on this one since she's a huge theatre geek. Great way to help us bond!
