This set celebrates the work of American stage musical composer and lyricist, Stephen Sondheim. Sondheim has been the recipient of an Academy Award, multiple Tony Awards, multiple Grammy Awards, and a Pulitzer Prize. He has been described by New York Times critic Frank Rich as 'the greatest and perhaps best-known artist in American musical theatre'. The set comprises the stage musicals: 'Into The Woods', 'Sunday in the Park With George', 'Sweeney Todd', 'Passion', 'Follies in Concert' and 'A Celebration at Carnegie Hall'.
Having just purchased this I can tell you what's in it - it's just Follies, Into the Woods, Sunday in the Park With George and Sweeney Todd - it does imply from the picture that you'll get Passion and a Sondheim celebration at carnegie hall - you don't - it does say in the description 4 disks and that is what they are. Still at £19.99 it's an absolute bargain!
This looks like an amazing DVD collection to get [ASIN:B0017LGFAK The Stephen Sondheim Collection [DVD] The only drawback is that, like Andy Miller from Nottingham says; I would like to know exactly what I'm getting for my money. Please could you write us all just a little list of the DVDs content. Thank-you.
Come on publishers/distributors, tell us what's on these 4 discs in this collection. It ought to be briliant but I'm not buying until I know what's on sale. (If I've missed something please tell me and I'll withdraw this review)
