Sondheim goes to the movies! In honor of Oscar night, 54’s popular Sondheim Unplugged series turns its attention to tunes from projects ranging from Dick Tracy & Reds to adaptions of Broadway hits like Sweeney Todd & Into the Woods. Although widely considered (with good reason) the master of the American musical, Oscar-winner Stephen Sondheim’s work for the cinema should not go unrecognized! From his original contributions to film (including the unproduced movie musical, Singing Out Loud & one very naughty addition to The Seven-Per-Cent Solution), to silver screen adaptations of his own stage triumphs, Sondheim’s motion picture stamp is prolific. Join some of Broadway & cabaret’s best vocalists when Sondheim Unplugged goes behind the camera for an up close visit with some sterling big screen treasures.
