About SAS 2023 Broadway Festival
SAS Performing Arts 2023 Broadway Festival is dedicated to this Great American art form.
A Sondheim Tribute Revue, which will be performed on June 4, 2023, is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI) on behalf of the Estate of Stephen Sondheim.
This musical evening is a celebration of music and song written by the irreplaceable Stephen Sondheim, the only modern composer, playwright, and lyricist compared to William Shakespeare.
Sondheim’s songs tell the stories of the human condition. His music is paradoxical, idiosyncratic, and never unbeautiful, changing Musical theater forever. Stephen’s life ended this past November, at 92 years of age, but his music will never be forgotten.
He composed and wrote lyrics for great musicals, including ANYONE CAN WHISTLE, FOLLIES, COMPANY, A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM, SWEENEY TODD, INTO THE WOODS, A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC, PASSION and ASSASSINS.
His songs are inspiring, and often humorous. Something for everyone.
Some of the songs included will be: Everybody ought to have a maid, Johanna, A Little Priest, You must meet my wife, Broadway Baby, Anyone can Whistle, Giants in the sky, On the steps of the Palace, Send in the Clowns, The Miller's Son, and A Weekend in the Country.
