SONDHEIM ON SONDHEIM wins Drama League Award for Distinguished Production of a Musical

ROUNDABOUT THEATRE COMPANY’s

Sondheim on Sondheim

Receives

DRAMA LEAGUE AWARD

For Distinguished Production of A Musical

“Sondheim is the best, brightest & most influential talent to emerge during the last half-century. And James Lapine is his best collaborator.” – Ben Brantley, New York Times

“A priceless gift to the theater!” – Linda Winer, Newsday

on Broadway at Studio 54

Winners of the 76th annual Drama League Awards were announced this afternoon. Roundabout Theatre Company’s Sondheim on Sondheim received the Award for Distinguished Production of A Musical.

Roundabout Theatre Company’s Broadway production of Sondheim on Sondheim stars Barbara Cook, Vanessa Williams, Tom Wopat, Leslie Kritzer, Norm Lewis, Euan Morton, Erin Mackey & Matthew Scott.  Music & lyrics are by Stephen Sondheim and the production is conceived & directed by James Lapine.

Sondheim on Sondheim is playing at Studio 54 on Broadway (254 West 54th Street).  This limited engagement has been extended through Sunday, June 27th, 2010.

Sondheim brought us Into The Woods, Company, Sweeney Todd, A Little Night Music, Sunday in the Park with George, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, West Side Story and Gypsy (to name a few). By writing songs that reflect the complexity of his characters, he has changed the way we define a great musical. But even though millions of fans know his songs by heart, few know much about Stephen Sondheim himself. Until now. Roundabout presents Sondheim On Sondheim, an intimate portrait of the famed composer in his own words… and music. Through the use of exclusive interview footage, you’ll get an inside look at Sondheim’s personal life and artistic process. An ensemble cast of Broadway’s best will perform brand-new arrangements of over two dozen Sondheim tunes, ranging from the beloved to the obscure. Directed by frequent Sondheim collaborator James Lapine, this unique experience will take you inside the life and mind of an ordinary New Yorker… with an extraordinary talent.

SONDHEIM ON SONDHEIM has been nominated for two Tony Awards including Best Featured Actress in a Musical (Barbara Cook) and Best Sound Design of a Musical (Dan Moses Schreier). The show also received a Drama Desk Nomination for Outstanding Musical Revue, four Outer Critics Circle Nominations for Outstanding New Broadway Musical, Outstanding Actress in a Musical (Barbara Cook), Outstanding Set Design (Beowulf Boritt) and Outstanding Lighting Design (Ken Billington), three Drama League Nominations for Distinguished Production of a Musical and Distinguished Performance (Barbara Cook & Vanessa Williams).
