In this Sondheim revue, two couples reflect on the complexities of modern relationships.
Putting It Together is a musical revue showcasing the songs of Stephen Sondheim (Sweeney Todd, Follies, A Funny Thing Happened...). Drawing its title from a song in Sunday in the Park with George, it celebrates Sondheim's incomparable career in musical theatre.
Featuring nearly thirty Sondheim tunes, Putting It Together is performed by only five people who are thrown together at a party in a Manhattan penthouse. With a bit of imagination, the guests transform the apartment into the stage of an abandoned theatre, an estate in Sweden, an island outside of Paris, a street off the Roman Forum, the woods of a fairy tale and a mythical town in the Southwest.
This tribute in the form of a revue provides a wonderful opportunity for simple sets and costumes. Sondheim's music will allow performers to showcase their vocal and acting abilities.
