Inspired by the opening of our new State Library, Archives and Museum building, for its upcoming fall production, Juneau Lyric Opera has elected to install an art exhibition of its very own, inside the JACC, to serve as the stage setting for the November 11-13 production of Putting It Together. Cast members will play art patrons attending the gala opening of the exhibition. Add champagne and drama… and it’s a party!
Putting it Together is a two-act music review showcasing the songs of Stephen Sondheim. The production premiered in Oxford, England in 1992. Diana Rigg, of The Avengers television fame, headlined the event. The incomparable, Julie Andrews, starred in the 1993 New York City Center production and the original RCA cast recording. In 1998, Carol Burnett stole the show during the Los Angeles premiere of the production. For performers unfamiliar with the work, a live performance of the L.A. production is available on DVD; clips can be found over the internet as well.
