News   Ashman, Blake, Duke, Donohoe and Sarando Set for Attic Theatre's Side by Side by Sondheim
Los Angeles' Attic Theatre will present a six-week run of the Sondheim revue Side by Side by Sondheim beginning March 12.

Dane Whitlock will direct and choreograph the production with musical direction by Richard Berent.

The cast will include Jenny Ashman (Joanna in Chandler Studio Theatre's recent Sweeney Todd), Jennifer Blake (The Donkey Show Off-Broadway), Morgan Duke (Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, London; Academy for Classical Acting, Washington, DC), Nick Sarando (Broadway workshop Summer of '42 and NYC Fringe Festival's Shadow People) and Joe Donohoe (national tour of Rent).

Originally conceived in London in 1976, Side by Side by Sondheim, according to Attic notes, "features songs from earlier landmark Sondheim shows that ultimately revolutionized musical theatre – A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, Anyone Can Whistle, Pacific Overtures – as well as classics from West Side Story, Gypsy and Do I Hear a Waltz? – penned by Sondheim in collaboration with musical theatre legends as Leonard Bernstein, Jule Styne and Richard Rodgers, to name a few.

"Exploring common themes prevalent in many of Sondheim's works:  love, loss, marriage, relationships, disillusionment and acceptance, Side by Side by Sondheim is an urban, sophisticated revue filled with heart and humor that offers a glimpse into the creativity, wit and genius that is Stephen Sondheim."

Performances will continue through April 17. Show times are Friday and Saturday at 8 PM and Sunday at 2 PM. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased by calling (323) 525-0661 or by visiting The Attic Theatre & Film Centeris located at 5429 W. Washington Boulevard (between Hauser and Fairfax).
