Cal State Fullerton’s musical theater majors once again prove themselves some of American’s Most Promising triple-threats in CSUF’s splendid big-stage revival of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Into The Woods.

A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC

In a 180-degree stylistic turn from last year’s Grease (USC’s most crowd-pleasing big-stage musical in years), the School Of Dramatic Arts revives Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s A Little Night Music so exquisitely that only its cast’s youth distinguishes it from the best of professional revivals.

WEST SIDE STORY

The musical many consider the greatest in Broadway history gets a magnificent big-stage production, the kind most West Side Story lovers can only dream of, as Musical Theatre West debuts their 59th-anniversary revival of the Arthur Laurents-Leonard Bernstein-Stephen Sondheim-Jerome Robbins classic.

DO I HEAR A WALTZ?

If ever there were an ideal show for Musical Theatre Guild to revive, it is Richard Rodgers, Stephen Sondheim, and Arthur Laurents’ Do I Hear A Waltz? Terrific songs. A book based on a successful play and movie. A couldn’t-be-more-romantic setting. Mixed reviews. Only 200 performances on Broadway. In short, a show you’re unlikely to see revived in any major sort of way any time soon.

Fortunately, thanks to MTG, L.A. audiences got treated to its many delights last night at Glendale’s historic Alex Theatre.

Chances are, however, that you’ve never seen a Stephen Sondheim Revue starring none other than Steve himself (albeit on video), which is why International City Theatre’s Los Angeles Premiere of Broadway’s 2010 Sondheim On Sondheim comes as news worth trumpeting far and wide.

WEST SIDE STORY

Candlelight Pavilion Dinner Theatre follows its multiple Scenie-winning In The Heights with that show’s half-century-earlier predecessor, the one that started it all, West Side Story, and like ITH, WSS is one of Candlelight’s finest productions to date.

ASSASSINS

Haste is of the essence in catching Red Blanket Productions’ superb intimate stage revival of Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman’s Assassins, not simply because only weeks remain in what looks to be a sold-out run at the Pico Playhouse but because, if Actors Equity has its way, starting next June you will never again see such a 99-seat production in Los Angeles County. Ever. (More on that later.)
