|Hi Cabaret friends,
I wanted to let you know about the final sessions of our Sondheim celebration classes at Porchlight Music Theatre which begin online this Sunday. These classes have been a lifeline during the pandemic, connecting with a group of Sondheim-lovers each week to study and celebrate his musicals.
Here's the official description:
A fun and inspirational class for fans of Stephen Sondheim, and those who appreciate the behind-the-scenes stories of how great musicals are made.
In an informal, conversational atmosphere, we’ll explore Sondheim’s later shows, Sunday in the Park with George, Into the Woods, Assassins, Passion, and Road Show, as well as some of the other interesting work he has made, including the film score for Dick Tracy, and the film version of Into the Woods. We’ll get to know Sondheim’s collaborators, including the stars who created the leading roles in many of these shows. Besides the real-life dish about the creation of these musicals, we’ll explore each show from the inside out, through class presentations, discussions, and recorded audio and video selections.
By the end of the class you’ll have a new appreciation for these enthralling masterworks, and the amazing composer/lyricist who created them.
