This revue celebrates the wit and genius of musical theatre's most influential artist, Stephen Sondheim. Get ready to laugh, cry and fall in love with lyrics that are heartbreakingly true and music that captures the soaring emotions of a new generation with Side By Side By Sondheim. Simple and unpretentious, this Tony Award-winning musical is a perfect introduction to the work of this contemporary master and a must for die-hard fans. Sondheim has been the leading composer of musical theater for the past 50 years. His work is timeless. From the streets of ancient Rome, through 19th century Japan and turn-of-the-century Sweden, to the high-rise apartments of 1970 Manhattan, his songs represent a definitive time and place, and yet move beyond their particular settings to speak to us all. Now, with this award-winning revue of his earlier work, some of his unforgettable songs are presented in one magical evening. Featuring music from Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, West Side Story and Pacific Overtures, this dazzling array of some of Sondheim's best-known songs demonstrate his masterful craft and astounding creativity. The numbers are a mix of well-known favorites from Sondheim's work as well as obscure songs that didn't make it into famous shows. A Narrator guides the evening, interjecting interesting stories between the numbers.
