Sondheim on Sondheim
A Theater event
November 17th, 2019
Hailed as a “revelatory revue full of wonderful moments” and a “funny, affectionate and revealing tribute to musical theatre’s greatest living composer and lyricist,” Sondheim on Sondheim is an intimate portrait of the famed songwriter in his own words…and music. Through the use of exclusive interview footage, audiences get an inside look at the personal life and artistic process of famed composer, Stephen Sondheim.
His story. His inspiration. His genius. The tapestry of creativity that characterizes Stephen Sondheim remained largely undiscussed, especially by the man himself, until the creation of Sondheim on Sondheim. Ranging from beloved to obscure, the carefully selected two-dozen songs hang from a framework of in-depth video interviews, delving into Sondheim’s personal and artistic process.
This performance will take place in the University Theatre, found in the Valparaiso University Center for the Arts.
Performances: November 8, 15 at 8 p.m., and November 10, 17 at 2 p.m.
