The Henry Street School of Music will present a benefit production of Stephen Sondheim's Putting It Together, August 2-4. The proceeds from the performances will go toward music scholarships for the children of downtown Manhattan.
Putting It Together is a "review" of master composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim's oeuvre, featuring five actors singing 30 songs from Sondheim musicals such as Company, Follies, and even Assassins. The show debuted at Manhattan Theatre Club in 1993 with Julie Andrews heading the cast, and a revised version was subsequently seen on Broadway in a production starring Carol Burnett and George Hearn.
Directed by Josh Carr, the Henry Street School of Music production of Putting It Together will have performances on Friday, August 2 and Saturday, August 3 at 8pm, plus a 3pm matinee on Sunday, August 4. Tickets are $15 if reserved in advance or $20 at the door; they can be purchased by calling 212-598-400 ext. 212. All performances will take place at the Abrons Arts Center Experimental Theater, located at 466 Grand Street in lower Manhattan.
