A dazzling array of songs celebrating the wit and genius of musical theatre’s most influential artist.

Celebrating the 40th anniversary of Circa Theatre’s original production, Side by Side by Sondheim is full of sparkling lyrics and exciting music, featuring two grand pianos and gorgeous gowns.

Performed by three of New Zealand’s leading international musical theatre performers Julie O’Brien, Matthew Pike and Sarah Lineham, and accompanied by maestros Michael Nicholas Williams and Colin Taylor, Side by Side by Sondheim celebrates the composer of Broadway successes West Side Story, Gypsy, Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods, Company, Follies and A Little Night Music.

Sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking, Side by Side by Sondheim is a spectacle of elegance, glamour, sophistication and humour with heart.

"This is a dream of a show […] happy, funny, witty and so compassionate. It makes you feel good!" – The New York Times
