Direct from Broadway: PUTTING IT TOGETHER: A MUSICAL REVIEW
Starring: Carol Burnett, George Hearn, John Barrowman, Ruthie Henshall, Bronson Pinchot
Directed by: Eric D. Schaeffer, Don Roy King
Synopsis: PUTTING IT TOGETHER: A MUSICAL REVIEW celebrates award-winning composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim’s humor, poignancy and sophistication in material taken from a number of his original musicals, including A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Anyone Can Whistle, Follies, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, Sunday In The Park With George, Assassins, the film Dick Tracy, and Do You Hear A Waltz?
Co-starring with Carol Burnett, whose Emmy®-winning The Carol Burnett Show is TV’s longest-running (11 years) comedy-variety show, are two-time Tony Award® winner George Hearn (La Cage Aux Folles, Sunset Boulevard), Olivier Award nominee John Barrowman (The Fix) Olivier Award winner Ruthie Henshall (She Loves Me) and Bronson Pinchot (Beverly Hills Cop, Perfect Strangers). Captured in brilliant high definition.
PUTTING IT TOGETHER is a musical "review" celebrating the songs of Stephen Sondheim. Drawing its title from a song in Sunday in the Park with George, the show came about due to many requests for an updated version of the 1976 Sondheim review, Side By Side By Sondheim, and had an interesting route to Broadway. Devised by Sondheim and Julia McKenzie, PUTTING IT TOGETHER first premiered in Oxford, England in 1992 with a cast that included Diana Rigg, Claire Moore and Clarke Peters.
Spring 1993 saw a production at the Manhattan Theatre Club, directed by McKenzie. The markedly revised revue now had a slight plot: at an all night, black tie party in a penthouse, an older couple (Julie Andrews and Stephen Collins) face their disillusions and marital troubles, along with a younger, less jaundiced couple (Michael Rupert and Rachel York) and a commentator (Christopher Durang). The spouses deal with infidelity and divorce but ultimately reconcile before dawn.
A production at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles ran from October to December 1998, featuring Carol Burnett, George Hearn, Bronson Pinchot, West End stage star John Barrowman and Susan Egan. This production of PUTTING IT TOGETHER subsequently transferred to Broadway in the Fall of 1999 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre, with this same cast except for Egan (who was by then starring as Sally Bowles in the very successful revival of Cabaret at Studio 54) who was replaced by West End stage star, Ruthie Henshall. Running for more than 100 performances, PUTTING IT TOGETHER landed a Tony nomination for Best Actor in a Musical for George Hearn.
