My first guest: Producer and Director, Jay James-Moody discusses his Australian premiere of Sondheim On Sondheim – a unique theatrical event showcasing the best of Stephen Sondheim – the ‘Father of the Modern Musical’. Squabbalogic’s production of Sondheim On Sondheim is drawn right from the heart of the genius behind the finest musical theatre works of the 20th century. From the world-famous to the obscure, two-dozen carefully selected songs are framed by in-depth video interviews delving into Sondheim’s personal life and artistic process and includes brand new material written by Sondheim.
