"My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" finds an unlikely audience in adult male viewers and quotes Sondheim.
By David Gomez (Actor/Songwriter)
A few years ago I saw a strange video from the TV series "My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic"
In the video a pony named Rarity is creating dresses for her friends Twilight, Pinkie Pie, Applejack, and Fluttershy.
She sings a song called "The Art of the Dress" that directly references "Putting It Together" from Sunday In the Park With George.
It's a catchy hypbrid of two worlds that I thought would never merge: Sondheim and My Little Pony.
Why "Friendship Is Magic" is Fascinating
