If you enjoy Broadway musicals and miss going to a show, catch “Take Me to the World: A Sondheim 90th Birthday Celebration” on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A92wZIvEUAw). This 2-hour production, featuring original cast members and stars from other venues, showcases Stephen Sondheim’s music and lyrics from dozens of musicals and a couple of movies.
Taped live on April 26, 2020 in the middle of the raging pandemic, this celebration presents performers from their homes as they enact a stunning variety of numbers that cover the breadth of Sondheim’s talent and career.
