1 Act, Revue, Rated PG
Original Off-Broadway Version (1981)
This Sondheim revue is a charming and bittersweet tale of love, loneliness and survival.
A charming and bittersweet musical revue featuring songs by Stephen
Sondheim, the undisputed master of the contemporary Broadway musical. Two urban
singles share a Saturday night of sweet fantasies and deep yearning
while never leaving the confines of their solitary apartments. Together
new theatrical life and meaning into a collection of trunk songs
that were culled from the final productions of Anyone Can Whistle,
Follies, Company, A
Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, and A Little Night
Two single strangers, left alone in their studio
apartments on a Saturday night, pass their time with sweetly secret,
unshared fantasies, never knowing that they're just a floor away from
each other and the end of their lonely dreams.
A must for Sondheim
aficionados, this easily produced one-act musical is also perfect as a
benefit, curtain warmer or second-stage production, as it can be played
on virtually any existing set - or no set at all. It's a smart, funny,
sophisticated and moving evening, and a fascinating look at "the songs
that got away."
