    A worthy tribute

    This is an excellent live concert of some of Sondheim's most popular songs. Singers are Jerry Hadley, Liza Minelli, Dorothy Loudon, Bernadette Peters, Harolyn Blackwell, Patti Lupone and others. It's a must for Sondheim fans and anyone who is just discovering show music.

    A Great Tribute to Sondheim

    Sondheim's great music in one big concert. Bill Irwin was truly funny. 'A Weekend in the Country' was breathtakingly performed. Glenn Close' 'Send in the Clowns' was truly astonishing. 'Sunday' from 'Sunday in the Park with George' ended the event in a really high note.
