Based on the play Front Porch in Flatbush by Julius J. Epstein and Philip G. Epstein

Sondheim. Signature’s Signature. Stephen Sondheim’s hidden gem Saturday Night (1953) is a Signature special concert event that will play for four performances only. Unproduced for almost 45 years, Saturday Night is the first musical Mr. Sondheim ever wrote. This romantic comedy surges with the composer’s unique musical voice and sophisticated lyrics. On the eve of the 1929 stock market crash, a group of Brooklyn boys despair their dateless Saturday nights. One of them dreams of Manhattan society life and hatches a get rich quick scheme which ultimately backfires. Features gems such as “Saturday Night,” “So Many People” and “What More Do I Need?”

BWW Review: Cabaret Celebrates Stephen Sondheim in Night Two of the Mabel Mercer Foundation Cabaret Convention (10/19)
by Ashley Steves - Oct 21, 2016

Hold your hats and hallelujah. After an electrifying opening night, the Mabel Mercer Foundation's 27th Annual Cabaret Convention continued Wednesday night in a packed Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Hosted by Jeff Harnar and Andrea Marcovicci, the cabaret community gathered to salute the music of Stephen Sondheim, the EGOT-winning composer/lyricist whose oeuvre has been simultaneously catapulting and tripping up artists for decades. Despite 30 performances on the evening, you'd be hard-pressed to find a weak spot in Wednesday night's lineup, hosting what is arguably the best rotation of the four nights, featuring cabaret giants, up-and-comers, expert arrangers (plus the talents of Jered Egan on bass and Dan Gross on drums), and Sondheim role originators.

BWW Blog: Paisley Haddad - I'm Back!
by Guest Blogger: Paisley Haddad - Oct 17, 2016

Hello Broadway World! I'm am finally back for another blog after a long summer of theatre withdrawals. I have been so busy since the beginning of school, with college applications, homework, and just senior year in general. However, now that the applications are in, and my Broadway series tickets have begun, I went and saw Rodger's and Hammerstein's Cinderella Saturday Night. It was the national touring cast, and the roles were casted perfectly. It encompassed the spirit of the original Cinderella story while also adding in some comic relief. Tatyana Lubov and Hayden Stanes shined as Cinderella and Prince Topher. It was very interesting to see that Rodger and Hammerstein decided to have one of the step sisters,Gabrielle played by Mimi Robinson, become Cinderella's friends rather than having them both be against her. Although that was the case, the other step sister, Charlotte played by Joanna Johnson, stole the show with her comedy and her Stepsister's Lament. Chris Woods also had the audience's attention with his great performance as Jean-Michel. The Fairy Godmother, Leslie Jackson, had a beautiful voice, which was showcased in "There's Music In You". The dancers were the highlight of the show for me. The choreography and the costumes took the show to a whole new level and made the props and scenery come to life. At some points I found myself watching the dancers more than the actual story because they had been trained so well. I had been in a school production of Rodger's and Hammerstein's Cinderella and it is interesting to see the huge differences between the actual Broadway musical script and the teen version. Also, there is nothing like going to a show at night. You can feel the excitement throughout the lobby and in the audience. Everybody is dressed up and ready to see the show. That's the magic of theatre. (more...)
