Stephen Sondheim has been the leading composer of musical theater for the past fifty years. His work is timeless. From the streets of ancient Rome, through 19th-century Japan and turn-of-the-century Sweden, to the high-rise apartments of 1970 Manhattan, his songs represent a definitive time and place, and yet move beyond their particular settings to speak to everyone.

Now, with this award-winning revue of his earlier work, Signature presents some of the most lush, unforgettable songs from this musical-theater master whose work has so influenced Signature’s history. Signature takes audiences back to where it all began with the early works of Stephen Sondheim, including songs from Anyone Can Whistle, Company, Do I Hear A Waltz?, Evening Primrose, Follies, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Gypsy, A Little Night Music, The Mad Show, Pacific Overtures, The Seven Percent Solution, and West Side Story.
