Set to debut on HBO early next month, SIX BY SONDHEIM is a celebration of one of musical theater’s brightest lights. Directed by frequent SONDHEIM collaborator (and three-time Tony Award-winner) JAMES LAPINE, the documentary takes an in-depth look at six iconic songs as examined by the composer himself. As varied as they are legendary, the songs featured are: SEND IN THE CLOWNS, I’M STILL HERE, BEING ALIVE, OPENING DOORS, SOMETHING’S COMING and SUNDAY.
In addition, the film showcases never-before-seen archival performance footage as well as new performances by the likes of DARREN CRISS, AMERICA FERRERA, JEREMY JORDAN and AUDRA McDONALD.
A master of many styles, SONDHEIM prides himself on his eclecticism and, during an interview we did last year, he talked about changing things up for different shows. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR TO HEAR STEPHEN SONDHEIM)
