Amidst the aftermath of the initial 1981 Broadway failure Merrily We Roll Along, Sondheim felt alienated from the overtly commercial world of Broadway.
He meets a young playwright/director, James Lapine, who leads him into the world of Off-Broadway and a remarkable creative renewal. What emerges from their collaboration is an intimate, yet grand work of profound beauty and intelligence, a work that is nakedly tender, open, honest, and timeless in its astute exploration of “the art of making art.”
