Side by Side by Sondheim



From "Comedy Tonight" to "Send in the Clowns," the musical selections in Side by Side by Sondheim, opening at the Attic Theatre on March 12 for a six week run, are snapshots from the early career of Broadway's most prolific composer and lyricist, Stephen Sondheim. Originally conceived in London in 1976 to educate the British public on the wit and wisdom of the master lyricist and composer, Side by Side by Sondheim features songs from earlier landmark Sondheim shows that ultimately revolutionized musical theatre - A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, Anyone Can Whistle, Pacific Overtures - as well as classics from West Side Story, Gypsy and Do I Hear a Waltz? - penned by Sondheim in collaboration with musical theatre legends as Leonard Bernstein, Jule Styne and Richard Rodgers, to name a few. Exploring common themes prevalent in many of Sondheim's works: love, loss, marriage, relationships, disillusionment and acceptance, Side by Side by Sondheim is an urban, sophisticated revue filled with heart and humor that offers a glimpse into the creativity, wit and genius that is Stephen Sondheim.
