Finishing the Hat: The Songs of Stephen Sondheim - Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts - March 15, 2018


Rob Kapilow: What Makes It Great?®

Virginia G. Piper Theater
Thu, Mar 15, 2018

Only a handful of artists in the 20th century redefined their fields as completely as Stephen Sondheim redefined musical theater. Yet although nearly everyone would agree that Sondheim has been the most influential innovator of the musical of the last half century, both his basic temperament and compositional style are almost directly at odds with the Broadway musical itself, and as a result perhaps no great artist’s work has been more misunderstood than Sondheim’s. Join Rob Kapilow and singers for an evening of performance and discussion that takes you deeply inside some of the most extraordinary theater music ever written, including songs like “Send in the Clowns,” “Finishing the Hat,” “Too Many Mornings” and “Getting Married Today.”
