Stephen Sondheim, Voiced By A Devoted Cabaret and Concert Community


WIth this video roundup of cabaret and club performers, we say goodbye to Mr. Sondheim.

Stephen Sondheim, Voiced By A Devoted Cabaret and Concert Community A massive blow was dealt to the world yesterday when the greatest contributor in the last sixty-four years to the art forms of musical theater, clubs, concerts, recordings and so much more left this plane. At the age of ninety-one, Stephen Sondheim passed suddenly from this earth, leaving communities theatrical and otherwise bereft. It was an impressive run but even though a nonagenarian, everyone just sort of believed that he would live forever. Didn't they? Didn't you? Because this guy did. Everyone has a Sondheim story - maybe about their first Sondheim show or the time they met him walking down the street, or the time he wrote a musical just for them. Everyone. Yesterday and today are the kinds of days when social media comes in handy - days when a Sondheimphile can scroll through their newsfeed and read those stories, and laugh and cry, and know that, as we mourn, no one is alone.

Broadway World Cabaret has collected some of our favorite nightclub performances, virtual offerings, and filmed concert clips to assist in the celebration of a life well-lived and an artistic community bestowed with an everlasting cannon of the most extraordinary musical stories, waiting to be told, on this day and for the rest of time.
