Overview

Hailed as a "revelatory revue full of wonderful moments" and a "funny, affectionate and revealing tribute to musical theater's greatest living composer and lyricist," Sondheim on Sondheim is an intimate portrait of the famed songwriter in his own words... and music. Through the use of exclusive interview footage, audiences get an inside look at the personal life and artistic process of famed composer, Stephen Sondheim.

His story. His inspiration. His genius. The tapestry of creativity that characterizes Stephen Sondheim remained largely unknown, especially by the man himself, until the creation of Sondheim on Sondheim. Ranging from the beloved to the obscure, the carefully selected two-dozen songs hang from a framework of in-depth video interviews, delving into Sondheim's personal life and artistic process.

Far from the typical song cycle, Sondheim on Sondheim has massive theatrical potency, as well as inarguable staying power. The incomparable James Lapine brilliantly curated a collection of songs that have been masterfully arranged by David Loud.

Paige Gagliano is the Director ofthe production with Carter Smith as Music Director and David Torns as Conductor.

Cast is as follows: Hayden Cresson, Chase Duhe, Elizabeth Durapau, Phyllis Horridge, GeoffKannenberg, Danielle Laird, Bob Smith, Adrienne Thornton, Cara Waring, StevenWarren, and Ethan Wax.

This show is located in our Hartley/Vey Studio Theatre. Entrance on North Blvd across from Old State Capital.

All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket to attend performances. Please carefully consider whether a performance is appropriate for children before planning to attend.
