Q&A with Todd Haimes: Stephen Sondheim Theatre

Posted on: March 23rd, 2010 by Roundabout

 

A conversation with Artistic Director Todd Haimes about the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.

1) What does the opportunity of renaming a theatre provide the artists associated with a not-for-profit theatre company?

The support that we are receiving through this renaming will specifically go to Roundabout’s Musical Production Fund, which means that it enables us to continue and enhance our commitment to musical productions. For artists like Stephen Sondheim himself, this translates into having the support to continue to revive his classic work at the highest level of quality possible. And Steve certainly isn’t done writing. I hope that we’ll be producing his newest work alongside the work of the next generation of musical theatre artists. Steve himself is so supportive of younger writers, and the opportunity provided by this renaming will allow us to give more of those artists the same kind of productions and exposure that gave Steve his chance to break through.

I’m sure that our desire to collaborate with Stephen Sondheim once again requires very little explanation. He is, after all, perhaps the definitive musical theater artist of his generation, as well as a recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and more Tony Awards for Best Score than any other composer and lyricist in history. Roundabout’s relationship with the work of Stephen Sondheim began with Company in 1995 and continued with revivals of Follies, Assassins, Pacific Overtures, and Sunday in the Park with George, as well as last year’s gala concert reading of A Little Night Music. I’m so proud to have this longstanding collaboration with Steve, which makes it particularly exciting to be bringing you a new view of his work through Sondheim on Sondheim.
