MAC-HAYDN TO TRIBUTE STEPHEN SONDHEIM IN REVUE LATER THIS MONTH
A tribute to the late composer Stephen Sondheim will be presented at the Mac-Haydn Theatre August 23 and 25.
Widely regarded as one of the most influential composers in Broadway history, Stephen Sondheim redefined the parameters of musical theatre throughout his 50-year career. For two performances only, a cast of six Mac-Haydn favorites will celebrate the award-winning, culture-shifting work of the legendary composer and lyricist.
The revue features Gabe Belyeu and Madison Stratton, last seen in “42nd Street” this season, Julie Galorenzo (Xanadu, Ragtime), Monica M. Wemitt (Hello Dolly, The Full Monty), James Benjamin Rodgers (Les Miserables, Exiled), and John Saunders (Hairspray, Carousel). Jillian Zack Music Directs and accompanies the cast on piano. The Limited Performance is directed by John Saunders, with Eric Shorey as Music Coordinator.
“Sondheim Tribute Revue” is the second of four cabaret-style productions in the 2023 Mac-Haydn’s Limited Performance Series. Following the two performances are: “Showstoppers” on September 2, and “Still Within The Sound Of My Voice: The Songs of Linda Ronstadt,” featuring Elizabeth Ward Land, on September 13.
