Putting It Together

HOPE MILL THEATRE, 2018

PUTTING IT TOGETHER

 

24th October to 24th November 2018 – Hope Mill Theatre

 

Words and Music by STEPHEN SONDHEIM

 

Devised by Stephen Sondheim and Julia McKenzie

 

Original Orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick

 

Presented by arrangement with

Music Theatre International (Europe) Limited

 

Drawing its title from a song in Sunday in the Park with George, Putting it Together celebrates Sondheim’s incomparable career in musical theatre and features nearly 30 musical numbers from some of the celebratedcomposer’s best-loved shows including Sweeney Todd, Follies and A Funny Thing Happened on The Way to the Forum.

 

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.
