Norm Lewis, who grew up in Eatonville and graduated from Edgewater High School, will be among those on the Broadway cast recording of Sondheim on Sondheim, which will be recorded this weekend and released in August.
Along with Lewis, the cast features Barbara Cook, Vanessa Williams and Tom Wopat, plus Leslie Kritzer, Euan Morton, Erin Mackey and Matthew Scott. Among the songs is Lewis’s rendition of the Sondheim classic “Being Alive.”
During the spring that Stephen Sondheim turned 80, I guess it’s logical that Broadway should be honoring him once again. New York Magazine famously asked, “Is Sondheim God?” The self-deprecating, quirky, occasionally transcendent answer to the question, the new revue Sondheim on Sondheim, shows that the answer is no – but he’ll do in a pinch.
