The Lyric Stage’s own award-winning Sondheim expert, Spiro Veloudos, now turns his unique vision to Sondheim on Sondheim, an intimate portrait of the famed songwriter in his own words and music. Taken from nineteen Sondheim shows produced over a 62-year period, eight of your favorite Boston-based musical-theatre artists (including Leigh Barrett*, Christopher Chew*, Aimee Doherty*, and Sam Simahk*) will perform a full evening of well-known, rarely-heard, and cut material, featuring video commentary from the master himself.
