BWW Review: Sondheim's Storytelling Shines in Winter Park Playhouse's PUTTING IT TOGETHERBWW Review: Sondheim's Storytelling Shines in Winter Park Playhouse's PUTTING IT TOGETHER
by Matt Tamanini - May 6, 2015

Stephen Sondheim is the greatest writer that the musical theatre has ever known. Now, obviously, intelligent minds can disagree, but if you do, I'm sorry, you're wrong. From story integration, to compelling characterizations, to insightful and witty lyrics, to complex and engaging melodies, no one has ever done it better than the man that many call "The Master." Sondheim's genius comes from the fact that every syllable he writes, and every note he composes, is in service of the story that he is telling; which is why I am always apprehensive of seeing one of the numerous revues of his work. Though he has been intimately involved in such shows as SONDHEIM ON SONDHEIM, MARRY ME A LITTLE, and PUTTING IT TOGETHER, which is running through May 9th at The Winter Park Playhouse, it often feels slightly disingenuous to see his songs, which fit so seamlessly amidst their original works, shoe-horned into completely contrived circumstances. Fortunately, under the direction of Roy Alan (who also choreographed), WPP's production makes each of Sondheim's beloved songs feel fresh, exciting, and (nearly) wholly original. (more...)

Stephanie Blythe--who's at the Met these days singing Baba the Turk in Stravinsky's THE RAKE'S PROGRESS--“abhors labels.” That's why, despite a cavernous voice that has become even deeper with age and could easily be termed mezzo or contralto, she tells me to call her “a girl singer.” (more...)

by BWW News Desk - May 11, 2015

As BroadwayWorld previously reported last year, Timberlane Regional High School planned to present a PG version of Sondheim's Sweeney Todd but administrators feared it would not be family friendly and attempted to cancel the production. In response, hundreds of supporters for Sweeney Todd gathered at a meeting to fight for the show. At the three-hour forum, the majority of the attendees were in support of SWEENEY. Superintendent Earl Metzler said he was not completely opposed to the play but that he needed to think of the community as a whole. In the end, the show went on, an Stephen Sondheim himself even wrote to the company to applaud their persistence. He writes: 'I've never understood why Sweeney Todd is considered 'controversial.' The incidents in the plot may be lurid, but the show's themes are primarily injustice, morality and greed, as Howard Sherman pointed out. More important, it's a wonderful scary story- what Sweeney Todd is really about is having a good time.' Check out his full letter below! (more...)
