The Society is pleased to announced that we’ll be staging a series of evening cabarets at The Phoenix Artist Club beneath the Phoenix Theatre in Charing Cross Road. The Stephen Sondheim Society Presents… will feature 50% Sondheim material, with the remaining 50% split evenly between material from new and upcoming musical theatre writers, and classics from the musical theatre songbook. Our aim is to showcase some of our SSSSPOTY winners and finalists from over the years, and to encourage new writers to air their work.
Our host for these monthly Monday evening cabarets will be Sondheim regular Tim McArthur (director of Into The Woods and A Little Night Music at Ye Olde Rose and Crown in Walthamstow, and on stage as Sam Byck in Assassins at the Pleasance). Joining Tim at the piano will be MD Aaron Clingham, although for the first our cabarets – on 11 April – Aaron is indisposed so will be leaving the musical requirements in the trusty hands of David Harvey, an alumni of the Royal College of Music and the Royal Academy of Music, and a regular MD for Tim’s shows.
