Side by Side by Sondheim

Nominated for both London’s Olivier Award and Broadway’s Tony Award for Best Musical,  Side by Side by Sondheim celebrates the music and lyrics of Pulitzer, Tony, and Academy Award-winning Stephen Sondheim, arguably the most important musical theater composer in American history. Side By Side ran in London and New York for well over a thousand performances, making it one of the most successful musical revues of all time.

 

A glittering evening of music, comedy, and song, the show features beloved hits from Gypsy, West Side Story, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Anyone Can Whistle, Company, Follies, A Little Night Music and Pacific Overtures – some of the songs include “Comedy Tonight”, “Broadway Baby”, “Anyone Can Whistle”, “A Boy Like That” and the Grammy Award winning “Send in the Clowns” to name a few.
