    Details - An Evening with Sondheim: A Musical Theatre Cabaret

    Sondheim is one of the most important figures in 20th-century musical theatre, he has been praised for having “reinvented the American musical" with shows that tackle "unexpected themes that range far beyond traditional subjects" with "music and lyrics of unprecedented complexity and sophistication." His shows have been acclaimed for addressing "darker, more harrowing elements of the human experience,” with songs often tinged with "ambivalence" about various aspects of life. This one night only engagement features local musical theatre artists singing some of our favorites from Stephen Sondheim.
