The American Theatre Critics Association’s Conference & Event committee invites you to this open discussion about Stephen Sondheim and the American musical on Tuesday, June 15, starting at 7 pm EDT / 4 pm PT.
ATCA member and past chair of the Executive Committee Rick Pender recently released The Stephen Sondheim Encyclopedia (Rowman & Littlefield). On June 15, he’ll bring together three other respected authors to talk about the experience of writing about musicals by the greatest composer and lyricist of the past half-century. Rick’s guests will be Ted Chapin (Everything Was Possible: The Birth of the Musical Follies), president Rodgers & Hammerstein (a division of Imagem); Mark Eden Horowitz (Sondheim on Music: Minor Details and Major Decisions), senior music specialist at the Library of Congress; and Stacy Wolf (A Problem Like Maria: Gender and Sexuality in the American Musical), professor of theater and American Studies at Princeton University. ATCA members will be invited to ask questions following a panel discussion.
This is part of a series of ATCA events designed to be for critics, by critics. Featuring ATCA members as panelists and moderators, these events will be free, informal and geared toward working arts writers. Stay tuned for upcoming Tuesday night discussions and please get in touch if you have ideas to share!
