Conceived by Stephen Sondheim and Julia McKenzie, Putting It Together features book, lyrics and music by Sondheim.

"A swanky Manhattan cocktail party provides the setting for a cast of five who use Stephen Sondheim's exquisite songs to examine the ups and downs of two relationships," according to press notes.

The revue features songs from Sunday in the Park with George, Assassins, Company, Merrily We Roll Along, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd and others.

Directed and choreographed by Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj, the production stars Tony winners Chuck Cooper and Lillias White as the central married couple. Tyler Hanes (A Chorus Line) and Stephanie Youell (Curtains) sing and dance as a younger couple. Xanadu's Andre Ward plays the role of the ubiquitous narrator.

Here is a look at the production, which runs through Feb. 15:
