Eamon Foley spent his early years performing in Broadway shows, namely Stephen Sondheim's Gypsy and Assassins when he was 9 and 10 years old. Now, as a director-choreographer, he is reimagining the Sondheim cannon with dance and cinematography as a response to the theater shutdown.

His latest project, "Greenfinch and Linnet Bird," is the seventh installment in The Sondheim Series. The film explores the Sweeney Todd song through contemporary pointe choreography danced by Complexions ballerina Larissa Gerszke. The new arrangement is composed by Jake Landau and sung by Shereen Pimental (West Side Story).
