Melissa Errico: Sondheim Sublime The Music of Stephen Sondheim

Details

Melissa Errico: Sondheim Sublime The Music of Stephen Sondheim will be held at the Strand Theatre in Shreveport on
Friday, September 30 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $29 and up.

Melissa Errico, a Tony Award-nominated Broadway star, is an actress, singer, and author. First known for her starring roles on Broadway, she has since become a concert, cabaret, and recording artist as well; her 2018 album Sondheim Sublime was called “the best all-Sondheim album ever recorded” by the Wall Street Journal.

Produced by Rob Mathes (Sting), with Sondheim Sublime, Melissa Errico shows us a side of Stephen Sondheim’s music that no singer has explored so completely before. It’s not the satiric or slyly disillusioned Sondheim – it’s the soulful Sondheim, the heartfelt, hungering Sondheim, author of songs of aching love and slowly dawning wisdom, the exalted, and reflective Sondheim: Sondheim Sublime.

Accompanied by pianist Tedd Firth, Errico sings in a tone by turns hushed, electric, and ecstatic, giving us a new understanding of the emotional intensity that has always equaled Sondheim’s virtuosic verbal magic.
