at Melbourne Civic Theatre:
PUTTING IT TOGETHER
AUG 2 - SEPT 8, 2019
words & music by:
devised by: Stephen Sondheim & Julia McKenzie
orchestrations by: Jonathan Tunick
In this Sondheim revue, two couples reflect on the complexities of modern relationships. Putting It Together is a musical revue showcasing the songs of Stephen Sondheim (Sweeney Todd, Follies, A Funny Thing Happened, Assassins, Into the Woods, A Little Night Music…). Drawing its title from a song in Sunday in the Park with George, it celebrates Sondheim's incomparable career in musical theatre.
Featuring nearly thirty Sondheim tunes, Putting It Together is performed by only five people who are thrown together at a party in a Manhattan penthouse. With a bit of imagination, the guests transform the apartment into the stage of an abandoned theatre, an estate in Sweden, an island outside of Paris, a street off the Roman Forum, the woods of a fairy tale and a mythical town in the Southwest.
