Stephen Sondheim is arguably America's preeminent composer/lyricist, and certainly its most erudite. He is the winner of nine Tony Awards, an Academy Award, and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Putting It Together is a compilation of Stephen Sondheim songs that the composer "put together" like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, creating a narrative set at a cocktail party in an elegant Manhattan condo. The non-traditional musical has a cast of five (a glamorous but slightly jaded couple, a starry-eyed younger couple, and a savvy observer) who sing more than 30 songs that reflect their lives, lifestyles and moods of the moment.
Putting It Together features music from some of Sondheim's greatest musicals, such as Into the Woods, Company, Follies, Assassins and Sweeney Todd. The show began as an Off-Broadway production in 1993 with Julie Andrews and Christopher Durang, later premiering on Broadway in 1999 with Carol Burnett, George Hearn and John Barrowman.
