Sondheim on Sondheim
'Sondheim on Sondheim' is a mixed film and live performance. The composer, Stephen Sondheim, is seen on the big screen speaking about his life, his work and his thoughts. These reminiscences are interspersed with live musical and dance numbers by an ensemble of eight supported by a an orchestra of 7 or 8 musicians. The live performances are excellent.
Sondheim lovers will need little encouragement to see this production but I highly recommend it to anyone interested in an insight into one of the singular talents of the past sixty years.
