An intimate portrait of musical theater icon Stephen Sondheim using his own words and music.
Comments from published critics
‘‘"Nothing quite tops other cast members sitting quietly on stage and listening to Barbara Cook sing 'Send in the Clowns.' Cook's exquisite rendition of Sondheim's best-known song demonstrates the essence of musical theater: an expert performer capturing the emotional truth found in a perfect blending of words and music."’’
‘‘"Sondheim on Sondheim confirms enchantingly what we already know but can gladly bear such eloquent repeating of: that Sondheim is the best composer-lyricist we’ve got. To have it incarnated on Broadway by a cast headed by Barbara Cook, Vanessa Williams, Tom Wopat and five personable others leaves us, after two-and-a-half hours, only hungry for more."’’
‘‘Engrossingly entertaining and thoroughly captivating. An enchanting, warm and provocative opportunity to hear not only Sondheim's songs but, literally, the master's voice.’’
‘‘Revealing, fascinating, utterly charming.’’
‘‘[A] funny, affectionate and revealing tribute.’’
