Putting it Together

Words and Music by Stephen Sondheim
Devised by Stephen Sondheim and Julia McKenzie
Original Orchestration by Chris Walker
Directed by Gary Griffin

Nov 07, 1997 — Dec 07, 1997

Featuring over 30 songs from such Tony-award winning shows as COMPANY, FOLLIES, and A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC, PUTTING IT TOGETHER is a fabulous foray through the work of Broadway’s greatest songwriter, Stephen Sondheim. At an all-night, black-tie party, warring spouses flirt with infidelity and divorce, singing of their bittersweet loves. Through brilliantly interwoven lyrics and melodies, five actors portray fractured pieces of the unresolvable puzzle of relationships. A four-piece ensemble brings the songs of this mature, sassy extravaganza to life in Court’s intimate space.¬†

For Sondheim enthusiasts, PUTTING IT TOGETHER is a treasured gem. For those less familiar with this witty, literate composer, the show provides a wonderful introduction. From early success with WEST SIDE STORY, through CANDIDE and INTO THE WOODS, to his recent hit PASSION, Sondheim has built an impressive body of work reshaping classic themes into his own innovative take on the American musical. Whether dazzling us with his sly intellectual games or ravishing us with a searing honesty, Sondheim’s mastery can always be counted on. In PUTTING IT TOGETHER, he has put together an evening that glows like a candlelit supper: intimate, sophisticated, and romantic.
