In honor of the late great Stephen Sondheim’s 94th birthday, 54 Below will present My First Sondheim. This unforgettable evening will be an intimate journey through the immense and impactful catalogue of Stephen Sondheim.

Performed by some of Broadway’s best singers, the performance will be both a concert of Sondheim’s beloved songs (ranging from Anyone Can Whistle to Road Show) as well as a personal celebration, with each performer sharing a milestone first of theirs with Sondheim. Whether it was originating a role in a premiere of Merrily We Roll Along or being first exposed to the Sweeney Todd cast recording…each of us has a Sondheim “first” that we love to relive. After all, you never forget your first…

Produced by Matt Koplik, of the popular podcast Broadway Breakdown.
