LOS ANGELES -- Stephen Sondheim will rewrite Putting It Together for a production starring Carol Burnett, scheduled to begin previews Oct. 4 at the Mark Taper Forum.

When the loosely plotted revue first appeared Off-Broadway at the Manhattan Theatre Club starring Burnett's pal Julie Andrews in 1993, the score consisted of songs from Sondheim's stage musicals and the Dick Tracy movie score, but the new version will include previously unheard material, said a Taper company spokesperson.

Eric D. Schaeffer, who has directed several Sondheim musicals at the Signature Theatre in VA, will direct, with musical staging by Bob Avian, who choreographed the MTC production.
