Melissa will join fellow theater mainstays Lewis Cleale, Christopher Fitzgerald, Telly Leung, Lesli Margherita, and Lauren Worsham for a Sondheim-focused series at 92Y in New York City.
Part of the Lyrics & Lyricists series, “Sondheim Wordplay” is set for March 30 – April 1 at Kauffman Concert Hall.
From 92Y: Though Stephen Sondheim has written both music and lyrics for some of the finest scores of the 20th century, it’s Sondheim the lyricist we’ll spotlight in this very special L&L show. A genius of dexterity, there isn’t a lyricist in American music who plays with words and language with greater virtuosity or delivers greater delight. From tongue twisters to passages of alliterative wit, we’ll examine how Sondheim puts it all together, as we celebrate the master craftsman with his own brilliant words.
Tickets are available at 92y.org.
