SONDHEIM ON SONDHEIM concludes limited engagement 6/27

Final Two Weeks!

ROUNDABOUT THEATRE COMPANY’s

SONDHEIM ON SONDHEIM

concludes its limited engagement Sunday, June 27th , 2010

“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


Roundabout Theatre Company’s (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) limited engagement of Sondheim on Sondheim will play its final performance on Sunday, June 27th at 2:00 PM. This new Broadway musical 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 will have played 38 preview performances and 74 regular performances.  Previews began on March 19th, 2010 and opened officially on April 22nd, 2010 at Studio 54 on Broadway (254 West 54th St).  This limited engagement was extended two weeks due to popular demand.
 
He 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 was 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 Award 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), the Drama League Award for Distinguished Production of a Musical and two Drama League nominations for Distinguished Performance (Barbara Cook & Vanessa Williams).
