LOS ANGELES -- The Mark Taper Forum's acclaimed and extended production of the Sondheim revue, Putting It Together, will end its run on Dec. 6. Together opened Oct. 4.
Carol Burnett, last on Broadway in Moon Over Buffalo, stars in the revue, which initially featured Julie Andrews when it played at Off Broadway's Manhattan Theatre Club in 1993. The cast also features John Barrowman (London's The Fix), Michael Nouri (Victor/Victoria), Susan Egan (Beauty and the Beast, Triumph of Love) and Bronson Pinchot (Zoya's Apartment). Pinchot is probably better known for his work on film (Beverly Hills Cop) and television ("Perfect Strangers").
The score of Putting It Together originally 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.
Reports continue that Cameron Mackintosh is planning a Broadway transfer of the show in 1999, but no definite plans have been announced.
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. Call (213) 628-2772 or visit http://www.TaperAhmanson.com for tickets and information.
