Tom Wopat, Norm Lewis, Euan Morton, and Matthew Scott will join the previously announced Barbara Cook, Vanessa Williams, and Leslie Kritzer in Sondheim on Sondheim. This new music theater piece with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book and direction by James Lapine, will play a limited engagement at Roundabout Theatre Company's Studio 54, March 19-June 13, with an opening on April 22. Due to a scheduling conflict, the previously announced Michael Arden will no longer participate, and one additional performer will be announced at a later date.

The creative team for Sondheim on Sondheim will include Beowulf Boritt (scenic design), Susan Hilferty (costume design), Ken Billington (lighting design), Dan Moses Schreier (sound design), and Peter Flaherty (projection design). Musical direction will be by David Loud.

This new production continues the theater's longstanding relationship with the composer-lyricist. The Roundabout has previously produced five of his musicals: Company, Follies, Assassins, Pacific Overtures, and Sunday in the Park with George, and it presented a gala concert reading of A Little Night Music, starring the late Natasha Richardson and her mother, Vanessa Redgrave, earlier this year.
