Broadway Revival Version (1999)
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 30 Sondheim tunes, Putting It Together
is all performed by only five people 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.
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.
