StoreyBoard Entertainment is delighted to announce the Australian tour of the Tony Award-nominated Sondheim on Sondheim, an intimate portrait of the famed musical theatre genius Stephen Sondheim.

Sondheim on Sondheim premiered on Broadway in 2010 and will tour to Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne in March/April 2022 with an all-star cast and directed by Sondheim devotee Tyran Parke, whose recent directorial credits include Chess the Musical, Follies and Barnum.

“I have always admired Stephen Sondheim and was saddened by his recent death. I am delighted to be remembering Stephen by presenting this tribute to Australian audiences,” said producer Adrian Storey.

Hailed as a “revelatory revue full of wonderful moments”, Sondheim on Sondheim is an intimate portrait of the much-loved songwriter in his own words and music. Through the use of exclusive interview footage, audiences get an inside look at the personal life and artistic process of famed composer, Stephen Sondheim.

Ranging from the beloved to the obscure, the carefully selected two-dozen songs delve into Sondheim’s personal life and artistic process.

“Is Stephen Sondheim God?’ And the answer, for those of us for whom musicals are truly a religion, is – now as then – yes. Or to use the language of the common folk, ‘Well, duh.'” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times

 “Engrossingly entertaining and thoroughly captivating. An enchanting, warm and provocative opportunity to hear not only Sondheim’s songs but, literally, the master’s voice.” – Steven Suskin, Variety on Sondheim on Sondheim
