A dinner party in a Manhattan penthouse is the setting for this delightful revue of the songs of Stephen Sondheim, as guests transform the apartment into settings for some of his most popular tunes. Nearly thirty songs, from classic shows such as Company, A Little Night Music, Merrily We Roll Along, and Sweeney Todd celebrate Sondheim’s incomparable career as one of theatre’s greatest composer/lyricists.
