Two Acts, Revue, Rated PG


The sophistication, wit, insight, heart and genius of Broadway's most innovative and influential artist is at the center of this tribute to composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim.

This dazzling array of some of Sondheim's best-known songs features numbers from landmark shows that revolutionized the musical theatre with their masterful craft and astounding creativity: COMPANY, FOLLIES, A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC, A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM, ANYONE CAN WHISTLE and PACIFIC OVERTURES, not to mention the classics written with musical theatre giants Leonard Bernstein, Jule Styne and Richard Rodgers, WEST SIDE STORY, GYPSY, and DO I HEAR A WALTZ? Also included are delectable rarities from the television musical Evening Primrose, the film The Seven Percent Solution and the hit revue The Mad Show.

Minimal sets and costumes, a small cast and two pianos allow the brilliant songs to shine. The proceedings are run by a charming, pithy narrator whose virtually non-existent musical requirements are ideal for a non-singing, local celebrity with limited rehearsal time. 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.

The first musical to feature murder as an essential ingredient of the plot was Rose-Marie in 1924, in which a fur trapper was falsely accused of a killing.
