The Tony Award-winning DC-area theatre presents the revue of songs by Stephen Sondheim (directed and choreographed by Signature's resident director Matthew Gardiner) April 26-June 12.
Musical director Jon Kalbfleisch (Sunset Boulevard, Show Boat, Les Miserables at Signature) and associate musical director Gabriel Mangiante (Signature's [title of show] and Dirty Blonde) round out the cast and will accompany the trio on pianos.
The award-winning Side by Side by Sondheim features Sondheim songs (covering 1957-1976) from Broadway's West Side Story, Anyone Can Whistle, Follies, A Funny Thing Happened…, A Little Night Music, Company and Pacific Overtures. Signature built its reputation with revivals of works by Sondheim. This is the first time Side by Side has been produced there.
The show has music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and additional music by Leonard Bernstein, Mary Rodgers, Richard Rodgers, and Jule Styne. Continuity is by Ned Sherrin. Side by Side will play The Max venue in Signature's home in Shirlington Village.
The design team includes Mischa Kachman (sets), Kathleen Geldard (costumes), Colin K. Bills (lighting) and Matt Rowe (sound).
