Class Description

Starting with “Company” (1970) through “Passion” (1994) Sondheim’s ability as both a composer and a lyricist have led to remarkable changes in the crafting of the American musical. This three-session course looks in depth at three groundbreaking shows: “Sweeney Todd” (1979), “Sunday in the Park with George” (1984) and “Into the Woods” (1986) through a socio-cultural lens. Stephen Kitsakos draws from a wealth of theatre experience, having served on the Theatre Arts Faculty at SUNY New Paltz from 1999-2013, where he taught undergraduate theatre studies and performance and directed many plays. He is also an opera librettist and writer.
