Book by Joseph Stein and Will Glickman  |  Lyrics by Arnold B Horwitt  |  Music by Albert Hague

Two sophisticated New Yorkers with property to sell find themselves stranded in Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania. Their encounters with the local Amish provide a charming and eye-opening look into the ‘plain’ people of this rural enclave as “country mouse meets city mouse.” The lush score includes the 50’s chart-topper “Young and Foolish” among many other musical gems.

"One of the most original musicals in many a semester. It has everything--the best of everything...Finds humor without ever poking fun." -New York Daily News

By Ted Tally

An extraordinarily inventive play... dealing with the ill-fated Antarctic expedition of Robert Falcon Scott, the play employs an ingenious free-form construction to capture the sweep — and personalities — crucial to this compelling study of heroism in the face of bitter failure.

"…an impressive first work…" — The Hollywood Reporter
"…explores the heart of courage in a white hell of adversity." — Time Magazine
"Mr. Tally is a most literate writer." — NY Times

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Conceived (and directed on Broadway) by James Lapine
Inspired by a concept by David Kernan
Orginally produced on Broadway by Roundabout Theatre Company
Todd Haimes, Artistic Director, Harold Wolpert, Managing Director, Julia C. Levy, Executive Director
Sondheim on Sondheim is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI)

The musical revue is a compilation of 41 songs from some of Sondheim’s most well-known productions. The show is built around recorded interviews with the master composer and lyricist which are projected onto the stage. The interviews outline the high points of his career and introduce his songs, many of which were cut from performances and are relatively unknown.
