Update: Regrettably, Mr Sondheim’s Platform Talk at the National Theatre has been postponed owing to unforeseen circumstances.
According to the National Theatre website:
“We can’t confirm anything just yet but we hope to be able to re-schedule this event for later in the year. When we have a new date, those who have already booked tickets will have priority access to book before public booking is opened.
As we don’t yet have a new date for the Platform, we will be making refunds to all ticket-holders. The refund will be to the card used when making the booking, and should appear on card statements within the next 72 hours.”
Stephen Sondheim will be in London this week to talk at the National Theatre with the NT’s Artistic Director, Rufus Norris. The “Platform Talk” will – according to the NT’s website – focus on Sondheim’s “career, and his views on current musical theatre trends”.
Tickets for the talk were limited to just four person and sold out within about half an hour of going on sale. The Society allocation was very oversubscribed, so congratulations to all those who managed to secure a seat. We understand that 20 rear circle Day Tickets will be made available from 9.30am on Wednesday 21st January in person from the Box Office, limited to two per customer.
The talk is scheduled to last 45 minutes.
With Road Show opening at the Union Theatre on 3rd February, might Mr Sondheim also find time to pay a visit to the rehearsals?
Please feel free to continue the conversation afterwards – and enjoy a craft beer or two – with some of the Stephen Sondheim Society Trustees and members at the Understudy bar, on the ground floor of the National Theatre.
