NEWSFLASH: Sondheim’s BEAUTIFUL GIRLS

THE MUSICALITY OF SONDHEIM

Lonny Price has created “a Stephen Sondheim revue of songs for women” entitled Beautiful Girls, which will be performed this evening at the Manhattan School of Music. Directed by Price, with choreography by Josh Rhodes, the show uses a a series of the composer’s songs to take the audience on “a women’s journey through life” and stars Zoe Caldwell, Jenn Colella, Marin Mazzie and Donna McKechnie will perform.

I’m not sure whether the singular/plural combination in the press materials is some kind of clever post-modern indicator or simply a typo, but the concept sounds like a more original showcase for Sondheim’s work than Roundabout’s upcoming Sondheim on Sondheim and – kudos to whoever is responsible for this – it’s been marketed as what it is – a revue, not an original musical, the term Roundabout so loosely bats about when describing its upcoming James Lapine-helmed production.
