Stephen Sondheim is the most acclaimed composer on Broadway. He has won eight Tony Awards (more than any other composer), eight Grammys, a Pulitzer Prize and an Oscar.

His phenomenal legacy includes lyrics for the musicals West Side Story and Gypsy, as well as music and lyrics for Follies, Company, A Little Night Music, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum and Sweeney Todd.

Side By Side By Sondheim is a celebration of Mr Sondheim’s earlier work in landmark shows that revolutionised musical theatre. This wonderful production celebrates some of his best known works including Send In The Clowns, Broadway Baby, Losing My Mind and Being Alive as well as featuring songs from West Side Story and Gypsy.

The original production of Side By Side By Sondheim began in London in 1976 to overwhelming success, where it ran for four years.

The Broadway production opened in 1977, and enjoyed an incredible run of 390 performances – largely unprecedented for a simple revue. The show started a trend for sophisticated revues that persists today.
