“Join us as we travel from a far-off corner of the Western sky, into the deepest part of the woods.”
Stephen Sondheim and Stephen Schwartz
The ninth installment of the Broadway Open Mic series is centered around two composers whose works are close to the hearts of musical theater fans everywhere. Simply entitled “Stephen”, attendees are invited to take the stage to sing the enduring music of two beloved Stephens: Sondheim and Schwartz. Both composers have a wealth of treasures, both well-known and a little more hidden, to their respective names. Mr. Sondheim is responsible for classics such as Into the Woods, Sweeney Todd, A Little Night Music, and Company, as well as lyrics for West Side Story and Gypsy. Mr. Schwartz is best known for creating masterpieces such as Pippin, Godspell, and the massive mega-musical Wicked, and his lyrics were featured in childhood staples such as The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Prince of Egypt, Pocahontas, and Enchanted.
