Sondheimas returns to the midtown cabaret following a sold-out show last year. It is billed as a "raucous celebration of the man, the music, and the mythos" that features songs both familiar and unknown.

The cast features Kurt Peterson (Follies original cast), Liz Larsen (Beautiful), Ariana DeBose (Hamilton), Molly Pope (Found), Nikka Graff Lanzarone (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown), Sal Viviano (Closer Than Ever), George Abud (Allegro), puppeteer Scottie Rowell, Larry Owens (Fat Camp) and Playbill’s Robbie Rozelle, who plays "The Ghost of Arthur Laurents."

The show is produced by David Levy and Maggie Larkin, with musical direction by Andrei Strizek. It was inspired by author Rachel Shukert, who first described the holiday on twitter and then further expanded on it in her book "Let Me Be Your Star."
