Putting It Together

While I was sipping Martini's in the foyer bar and talking loudly about being there (pun intended) in 1992 when Diana Rigg and Claire Moore were in the first UK production of Sondheim's montage of top tunes from several of his shows I was hardly prepared for the treat in store. A sure fire Olivier Award winning performance from Janie Dee plus David Bedella, Damian Humbley, Caroline Sheen and Daniel Crossley all come together perfectly for a sophisticated evening of wit, clever rhyming and simple effective orchestration. The songs are neatly crowbarred into a narrative of love, lust, divorce and despair but delivered with such passion (pun no.2 intended too) that no one really cares.
