A swanky Manhattan cocktail party provides the setting for a cast of five who use Stephen Sondheim’s exquisite songs to examine the ups and downs of two relationships. The stellar cast of Broadway performers includes Tony Award-winners Lillias White and Chuck Cooper (Best Actress and Best Actor in The Life, 1997), Tyler Hanes (Broadway’s A Chorus Line, Sweet Charity and Hairspray), Andre Ward (Xanadu, The Producers) and Stephanie Youell (Curtains).
Putting It Together showcases 30 of Sondheim’s most beloved songs from such musicals as Sunday in the Park with George, Assassins, Company, Merrily We Roll Along, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd and others. Many of the classic Sondheim songs are presented in a context entirely different from that for which they were written, so the show is billed as a “review” of the composer’s work.
