Based on an idea by Charles Gilbert, Jr.

New Line Theatre has produced many musicals by composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim over its 17 years (Anyone Can Whistle, Company, Sweeney Todd, Sunday in the Park with George, Into the Woods, Assassins, Passion, and two revues of his songs), but they've never been performing one of his shows on his birthday -- till now! On Saturday, March 22, during the current run of Sondheim and John Weidman's Assassins, New Line will throw Sondheim a 78th birthday party, complete with birthday cake for the audience.
