Is there no end to the number of Sondheim productions whizzing around in celebration of his 80th?
Up next year is a sparkly new production of Follies, with none other than Broadway goddess – and current A Little Night Music star – Bernadette Peters in the lead as Sally (at Washington’s Kennedy Center, 7 May to 5 June 2011).
Perhaps even more exciting, Kim Cattrall, who has been recently working it in the West End in Private Lives at the Vaudeville Theatre, is rumoured to be playing Phyllis in the musical (her rendition of “Someday I’ll find you” in PL was more than acceptable, and any way, she can always do a Dianna Rigg and sing-speak it).
We know that it hasn’t even transferred to Broadway yet, but please can someone put first dibs on it for London? (Cameron Mackintosh – you know you want to).
