Depot Theatre’s “Putting It Together” by Tim Rowland
Stephen Sondheim was, by acclaim, the best composer/lyricist of the latter half of the 20th century, his name up on the marquee of Broadway titans along with Irving Berlin and Cole Porter. Sondheim died last fall at the age of 91, and in tribute, the Depot Theatre in Westport opens its 2022 summer season with PUTTING IT TOGETHER, a musical revue that cleverly spins a story out of songs plucked from a cross section of Sondheim’s copious canon.

Film Showing – Thursday, July 7, 7 pm
MONKEY TRIAL follows one of the most famous legal battles of the 20th century, the trial of John Scopes for violating a Tennessee law forbidding the teaching of evolution in public schools. But the account presented here sheds new light on this well-known event, rewriting popular history and biography in the process. Monkey Trial is a film that pits scientific discovery against religious fervor.
It’s about a moment in history when two men (Clarence Darrow and William Jennings Bryan) faced each other across a courtroom, each trembling with rage, each attacking the faith of the other. Directed and produced by Christine Lesiak and Co-Producer and Director, Anne Mumgaard for American Experience, PBS, 2002, 90 mins.
Admission is free. Doors open at 6:30 PM. Covid-19 vaccination is strongly recommended and masks are encouraged. Masks will be available. Seating is limited and on a first-come, first-serve basis.
