Starring 12 singers and an orchestra of 16, Simply Sondheim includes over 30 songs from the composer's canon. Filmed during the COVID shutdown, Simply Sondheim was the first streaming production Signature's 2021 Signature Features all-streaming season and was viewed in every single US State, and in 15 countries on 5 continents.

Simply Sondheim will be available to stream in HD exclusively on MarqueeTV, an on-demand streaming platform dedicated to global arts and culture.

"Signature is thrilled to re-release our filmed production of Simply Sondheim as part of our ongoing season long commitment to celebrating Sondheim's work" says Signature Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner. "This production was filmed during the early days of the pandemic, in 2020, when there was so much uncertainty about when we'd be able to return to live performances. Sondheim gave us his blessing and thoughtful insight throughout the process of bringing this filmed production to our audiences. Simply Sondheim's talented cast, crew and orchestra embody the best of Signature and thanks to MarqueeTV I'm thrilled that audiences will be able to once again enjoy this theatrical experience from the comfort of their homes."

Created specifically for Signature Theatre with special permission from Sondheim himself, this jam-packed revue features over 30 songs from the composer's canon. The quintessential "Finishing the Hat," "Another Hundred People," "Losing My Mind," and "The Worst Pies in London" meet lesser known gems including "Country House," "Saturday Night," and "Goodbye for Now" and are fused with new orchestrations by longtime Sondheim collaborator Jonathan Tunick. With a lush 16-piece orchestra leading the way for 12 phenomenal singers, this exclusive event satisfies every Sondheim craving.
