Depot Theatre Announces Cast of PUTTING IT TOGETHER
The Depot Theatre in Westport, NY is pleased to announce the cast of its 2022 season opener PUTTING IT TOGETHER, a celebration of the stage and screen work of multiple Tony Award-winner Stephen Sondheim.
A humorous, poignant, and sophisticated musical review, the show weaves a lyrical story around the emotions and relationships of five guests attending a Manhattan cocktail party, and it features material from a number of Sondheim’s works, including ANYONE CAN WHISTLE, COMPANY, FOLLIES, A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC, SWEENEY TODD, MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG, SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE, and INTO THE WOODS.
The Depot production is the 1999 Broadway version of PUTTING IT TOGETHER, which originally ran at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre for 101 performances and 22 previews, with a cast that included George Hearn, who was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Actor for his role as Man #1, and Carol Burnett as his wife.
