Entitled iSondheim: aMusical Revue, the revue will mark the grand finale of the 40th anniversary season for Atlanta's Alliance Theatre company. The production will run April 15-May 10, 2009, on the Alliance Stage.
Lapine is creating the innovative multimedia revue, which will incorporate original and archival commentary from the Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer. The new work promises to take audience members "to the very heart of Sondheim's life and work."
Michael Starobin, who earned Tony Awards for his orchestrations of Assassins and Sunday in the Park with George, has orchestrated the production.
"I truly look forward to returning to the Alliance Theatre where I had a great experience directing Spelling Bee. I enjoyed the Atlanta audiences and am thrilled that they will be the first to see this new production," Lapine said in a statement. "It will be full of surprises, exciting visual elements and, of course, filled with glorious Sondheim music."
