Stage Door - Sunday 25th April 'Sondheim Sunday'

Tune in now to ITV South Bank Show who are showing an interview with Stephen Sondheim. 10.15pm.

Here is the playlist from this evening:

Comedy Tonight - from A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.  Original Broadway Cast Recording to 1962.

America - from West Side Story.  Original Broadway Cast Recording - I love the gritty realism of this recording.

Anyone Can Whistle - from Anyone Can Whistle recorded for the compilation album - The Stephen Sondheim Album (A must have!) Recorded by Jane Krakowski.

Make The Most of Your Music - from the 1987 London Cast Recording of Follies sung by Daniel Massey.

Being Alive from Company recorded by Barbra Streisand for her Broadway Album.

Overture from Merrily We Roll Along from the 1981 Broadway Cast Recording.

Wait from the Original 1979 Broadway Cast Recording of Sweeney Todd.

Agony from the 1990 London Casting recording of Into The Woods.

More from the film Dick Tracy from Madonna's Breathless Album.

So many songs I could have selected but this was the best of the best. Lets have a Sondheim 2 session!!

Now go and tune into ITV and listen to how Sondheim talks about telling a story through song and how his mentor was Oscar Hammerstein.
