One Act, Revue, Rated PG
Whitney Museum of American Art Composers' Showcase Version
An intimate revue that sheds light on lesser-known Sondheim masterpieces and his illustrious career.
The hidden gems of Stephen Sondheim's canon reclaim the spotlight in this marvelously understated overview of the career of Broadway’s reigning genius. Originally performed at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City, You're Gonna Love Tomorrow played two sold out performances and included surprise performances from Angela Lansbury and Sondheim himself.
exhilarating work represented here is nothing short of a revelation:
the appealing melodies and astonishing craft of his first unproduced
Broadway musical, written in his early 20s; the gut-busting numbers
that didn’t make it into A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum; the stark beauty of Pacific Overtures; the sweeping romanticism of Anyone Can Whistle; and a heartrendingly gorgeous ballad from his adaptation of The Frogs, originally staged in the Yale University swimming pool.
rare gems are performed alongside some of Sondheim’s best-loved
miniature masterpieces in the simplest of one-act revues that is ideal
for intimate theatres, cabaret spaces and concert halls. A perfect
follow-up to the popular Side By Side By Sondheim;
it is by turns howlingly funny, astoundingly clever, hauntingly
beautiful and always entertaining. If you like Sondheim, you're gonna
love You're Gonna Love Tomorrow.

Anyone Can Whistle marked the Broadway Musical debut of Angela Lansbury in the role of the corrupt Mayoress Cora Hoover Hooper. She has gone on to win four “Best Actress In A Musical” Tony® Awards.
