New York City
Providing a behind-the-scenes glimpse at how a musical is created and the forces behind its creation, A Class Act, uses flashbacks to retrace the high and low points of Edward Kleban’s amazing career and explores how an artist’s personal life can inspire or interfere with professional pursuits. The show integrates songs, which Stephen Sondheim said he "wished he’d written," from widely different Kleban projects into the narrative, with the topics ranging from the tricks of songwriting to personal/professional relationships to self-critical examination. Each number establishes a particular moment of insight creating a study of a lost era in show business.
