Hi friends, this week we’re honoring the life and legacy of Stephen Sondheim.
The luminary musical theatre composer and lyricist passed away on Friday, November 26th, at the age of 91.
Today I’m bringing you behind the scenes at Sunday for Sondheim, a tribute from the Broadway community. You’ll hear from Fergie L. Philippe, Erich Bergen, and Brian Stokes Mitchell about Sondheim’s impact on their lives… Lin-Manuel Miranda reads from Sondheim’s book: “Look, I Made a Hat!” and the Broadway community’s rendition of, “Sunday,” from Sunday in the Park with George sung in it’s entirety.

Broadway SHOs are announcing their new opening dates. While we’re excited to see everyone get back to work, we must stay vigilant in our calls to make theatre a safe space for everyone involved. We need reports on how companies will be enacting anti-racist, anti-transphobia, anti-abelism and anti-abuse work. We can’t go back, we must move forward.
Get your vaccine, wear a mask, be safe and let’s take care of ourselves.
We’ll see you at the SHO
