"Saturday Night" was Sondheim's first musical. Set in 1929 Brooklyn, "Saturday Night" tells the story of a group of Brooklyn boys trying to make good in the stock market. Unfortunately, one of them, Gene, is so eager to climb the social ladder and impress his sweetheart, that he invests his friends’ money in a swank apartment near the Brooklyn Bridge, even going as far as to sell the gang’s precious automobile!
Packed full of comedy, unforgettable melodies and loveable characters, "Saturday Night" is guaranteed to have you singing along and wanting more. A must-see for all this term!
"Saturday Night has the unmistakable stamp of shrewd imagination and originality. And for fans of Mr. Sondheim, it packs something extra: the heart-stopping sensation of a curtain going up on genius!" New York Times
