A Celebration At Carnegie Hall

On June 10, 1992, a benefit performance for Carnegie Hall was held, honoring the music and lyrics of Stephen Sondheim. It featured nearly fifty performers, many of whom had professional connections to Sondheim. The creators wanted to focus on songs for which Sondheim had written both music and lyrics. Even so, they had trouble narrowing down the song list to what was heard in the final program. RCA Victor recorded the evening and released it as a two-CD set in 1993, with a single CD of highlights appearing later in the year.

Assassins is about how society interprets the American Dream, marginalizes outsiders and rewrites and sanitizes its collective history.

“I found [the Sondheim Celebration's Company] to be completely delightful. Almost all of the numbers excited and energized me, and most of the scenes were about as pitch-perfect as you can get. I just sat there with a big smile on my face the whole show.

Which is not to say that it is perfect...”
