Sondheim in East Hampton

“There are few things that remain constant in life, but for me one of them is this: Stephen Sondheim’s work has touched me for more than half a century.” –Frank Rich

He has gone from cult figure to national icon. His melodies, which have been labeled “unhummable,” get under your skin and linger for days. He is perhaps the greatest English language lyricist of any age. Every brilliant lyric and crystalline melody will be audible in Crowder Hall when Ted Sperling, one of Broadway’s most in-demand music directors, is joined at the piano by Betsy Wolfe and Clarke Thorell,  two of Broadway’s freshest singers. Spend an evening with “the greatest living American composer after Copland.”
