Since the Broadway world lost Stephen Sondheim a year and a half ago, it seems interest in the Master has only grown. Four experts will reflect on his body of work, digging below the surface to uncover lyrical and musical gems. Peter Filichia will look back at decades of seeing Sondheim first-run shows; Howard Ho will explore whether Sondheim was more of an innovator or a traditionalist; Gail Leondar-Wright will point to things you might have missed about Sunday in the Park with George, and David Benkof will do the same for Into the Woods. Appropriate for both newbies and mega-fans. Lots of time for Q & A.
