Fuck Yeah Stephen Sondheim

Bow before the fucking king of musical theater.

You can put stuff in my ask box, but I'm unlikely to answer on the blog. I will probably just put the answer in your ask box. If you really want to have a conversation, I'm always on Twitter.

Last Midnight - Into The Woods (Original London Cast Recording)
Julia Mckenzie as The Witch

I prefer this recording over the Broadway cast recording. The London cast has a darker feel to it…..

“Comedy Tonight/Love Is in the Air,” from the original London cast recording of Side by Side by Sondheim.

The opening number and one of my favorites.  I do not own the copyright to this or claim any rights to this under IP law, but offer it as an introduction to one of my favorite Sondheim revues.  Buy the album; you won’t regret it.

[Screenshot of a Facebook conversation between myself and JAY Records:

Fuck Yeah Stephen Sondheim: Are we ever going to see a release of the complete Anyone Can Whistle with Julia McKenzie, Maria Friedman, and John Barrowman? If One Touch of Venus will finally see the light of day this year, could Anyone Can Whistle possibly be next?

JAY Records: Watch this space. :-)]

The Frogs | Invocation and Instructions to the Audience
Bronson Pinchot performing in the revival of Putting It Together on Broadway

Music & Lyrics: Stephen Sondheim
Book: Stephen Sondheim and Julia McKenzie

Note: Some of the lyrics were edited for this musical revue, so it’s not entirely identical to The Frogs’ original version.

Do you follow yourdailybway? Am I getting repetitive?

(In honor of my favorite Broadway tumblr, this is part of a handful of reblogs from the same source.)

Since this version drops the Invocation bit of the song, shouldn’t it just be called “Instructions to the Audience?” I should dig out my Playbill and see how it was listed.

My score lists it as both “Invocations and Instructions”, but it also reveals that part of the song was cut for time in the video, and was, under normal circumstances, performed in its entirety.

Really? That’s not how I remember it in the theater. I thought they retained the version as heard on the off-Broadway cast album that begins with theater announcements about silencing devices and unwrapping candy and skips past the “gods of the theater” bit right into the Instructions. But my memory could be faulty.

Speaking of Julia McKenzie, even though she played Sally in the West End, she recorded “Could I Leave You?” for Sondheim: A Celebration (the Side by Side by Sondheim reunion album) and knocked it out of the park.
