SONDHEIM ON SONDHEIM will be directed by Sarna Lapine with Gustavo Dudamel conducting the Los Angeles Philharmonic and YOLA, who will join the show to perform “Children Will Listen” alongside the LA Phil.

From Follies and Into the Woods to A Little Night Music and Sweeney Todd, Stephen Sondheim‘s umpteen Broadway masterpieces assure him a permanent spot among the very top creators of the American musical. Audiences will not want to miss this “funny, affectionate and revealing tribute to musical theater’s greatest living composer and lyricist” (USA Today), a musical revue-style journey through the extraordinary life and career of Stephen Sondheim.
SONDHEIM ON SONDHEIM will have one performance only at the Hollywood Bowl this summer – Sunday, July 23, at 7:30 PM.
