PUTTING IT TOGETHER

by Stephen Sondheim, with Julia McKenzie

Together

That is the state of the art, my friend. That is the state of the art.

A musical mélange featuring two dozen of Stephen Sondheim’s best songs, PUTTING IT TOGETHER shows us the highs and lows in the lives of three men and two women at a cocktail party on New York’s trendy Upper West Side. Featuring songs from A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC, SWEENEY TODD, FOLLIES, and more, this show is sure to make a great evening of musical theatre.
