Sondheim On Sondheim Finalizes Cast

That's right all you Sondheim fans. It was just announced that casting for the Roundabout Theatre Company's production of Sondheim On Sondheim is now complete. Joining previously announced stars Barbara Cook,Vanessa Williams, and Leslie Kritzer are Tom Wopat,Norm Lewis,Euan Morton, and Matthew Scott. Previews are seat to begin at Studio 54 on March 19, 2010 with an official opening set for April 22. Here is a brief description of the show according to a Roundabout source.

"Even though millions of fans know his songs by heart, few know much about Stephen Sondheim himself. Until now. Roundabout presents Sondheim on Sondheim, an intimate portrait of the famed composer in his own words...and music. Through the use of exclusive interview footage, you'll get an inside look at Sondheim's personal life and artistic process. An ensemble cast of Broadway’s best will perform brand-new arrangements of over two dozen Sondheim tunes, ranging from the beloved to the obscure. …This unique experience will take you inside the life and mind of an ordinary New Yorker… with an extraordinary talent."

This new production is directed and conceived by longtime Sondheim collaborator James Lapine. As of now the show is a limited engagement set to run thru June 13, 2010. However if reviews are good expect the show to be extended well into the summer. Tickets are set to go on sale after the first of the year so don't delay.
