Sondheim On Sondheim Now On Sale

That's right Sondheim fans. Tickets are now available for one of this season's most anticipated shows. I am talking about Sondheim on Sondheim. This musical revue is set to begin previews at Studio 54 on March 19 with an official opening set for April 22. Here is a brief description of the show according to producers. "He brought us Into The Woods, Company, Sweeney Todd, A Little Night Music, Sunday in the Park with George, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, West Side Story and Gypsy (to name a few)," according to the Roundabout. "By writing songs that reflect the complexity of his characters, he has changed the way we define a great musical. But 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."

Starring in Sondheim On Seindheim are a varity of Broadway veterans and newcomers. They are Tony Award winner Barbara Cook, Vanessa Williams, Tom Wopat, Leslie Kritzer, Norm Lewis, Euan Morton, Erin Mackey and Matthew Scott. Directing the show is longtime Sondheim collaborator James Lapine. Now I'll be the first to admit that I am not the biggest Sondheim fan in the world. Although I loved Roundabout's 2008 production of Sunday in the Park With George. Maybe I'll give this one a shot. I do love Vanessa Williams. Be advised that the show is a limited engagement scheduled to run thru Jun 13. However if the reviews are good I wouldn't be surprised if it extends. We will soon find out.
