Your Sondheim Quota For The Week!

 Anthony Perkins and Charmian Carr,
in Evening Primrose, a televised Sondheim musical
from 1966...if Charmian looks familiar, you may be remembering
her as Liesl, from The Sound of Music!
We'll hear "Take Me To The World."

 George Hearn, Ruthie Henshall, and John Barrowman,
in Putting It Together, a review of Sondheim songs.
We'll hear two from this review:
George's version of "Good Thing Going,"
and John singing "Live Alone and Like it."
 From Sondheim's very early (1955) Saturday Night...
which had to wait til 2000 for its Off-Broadway debut.
That's Lauren Ward on the right, 
and we'll hear her sing "All For You."
Lauren would go on to star in Mathilda.

 Phyllis Newman...who starred in the 1985 concert version
of Follies...leads a gutsy group of dames in 
"Who's That Woman?"

 Glynis Johns in the original production of
A Little Night Music, 1973...
the definitive "Send in the Clowns" singer.

The perpetrator...Stephen Sondheim.
"I prefer neurotic people. I like to hear rumblings beneath the surface."
