Sir Cameron Mackintosh said: "I couldn't be more delighted that my brother, Robert, is presenting the London premiere of Sondheim's review 'Putting it Together' - a companion piece to Side by Side by Sondheim that I put together with Julia Mackenzie in England many years ago starring Diana Rigg and subsequently in New York with Julie Andrews and Carol Burnett.
Robert's theatre, the stylish and innovative St. James, should prove the perfect venue for Sondheim's brilliant, witty and moving material culled from many of his great musicals. 'Putting it Together' is a musical theatrical cocktail that promises to leave audiences shaken, stirred and highly entertained."
Putting it Together, Show Synopsis:
