JOHN COULBOURN - QMI Agency
David Mirvish is betting all those who love SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH
GEORGE aren't going to want to miss Monday in the theatre with Stephen.
Mirvish has announced that, on Monday, Dec. 6, the Princess of Wales Theatre will play host to AN EVENING WITH STEPHEN SONDHEIM, featuring a rare appearance by the 80-year-old composer and lyricist behind such celebrated works as WEST SIDE STORY, COMPANY, FOLLIES, SWEENEY TODD, SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE, and, of course, A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM, which is part of the Mirvish subscription season.
After an introduction from Stratford's Des McAnuff, who directs FORUM, Sondheim will engage in an onstage conversation with Toronto theatre journalist, Robert Cushman.
Sondheim's new book, 'Finishing the Hat--Collected Lyrics 1954-1981 with Attendant Comments, Principles, Heresies,Grudges, Whines and Anecdotes' will be published Oct. 26 by Knopf.
