Words and Music by STEPHEN SONDHEIM


Devised by Stephen Sondheim and Julia McKenzie


Original Orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick


Presented by arrangement with
Music Theatre International (Europe) Limited


Drawing its title from a song in Sunday in the Park with GeorgePutting it Together celebrates Sondheim’s incomparable career in musical theatre and features nearly 30 musical numbers from some of the celebratedcomposer’s best-loved shows including Sweeney Todd, Follies and A Funny Thing Happened on The Way to the Forum.


Putting It Together is performed by only five people who are thrown together at a party in a Manhattan penthouse. With a bit of imagination, the guests transform the apartment into the stage of an abandoned theatre, an estate in Sweden, an island outside of Paris, a street off the Roman Forum, the woods of a fairy tale and a mythical town in the Southwest.
