An intimate revue that sheds light on lesser-known Sondheim masterpieces, as well as 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 Tomorrowplayed two sold-out performances and included surprise performances from Angela Lansbury and Sondheim himself.
The 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 twenties; 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.
These 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.
