A revue with 27 Sondheim songs, well sung! Can't ask for anything more.
If you are a Sondheim fan, this was an event not to miss. The selection included music from Company, Follies, Sweeney Todd, A Little Night Music and more. Very enjoyable. Beautiful church setting in a good location.
It was wonderful hearing 28 songs of Sondheim with very good singers.
What a wonderful afternoon. Amazing performances and so pleased to see true Sondheim fans. It was very well attended. The review was well directed and flowed with drama and theatricality!! It was nice to have Sarah Rice (The Original Johanna on Broadway with Angela Lansburry and Len Cariou) in the audience and I caught up with her because I had studied with Jack Eric Williams who played the original Beadle in Sweeney Todd.
