Saltwater Inc presents: Side by Side by Sondheim – February 28 – March 3rd, 2013

One of my highlights of the 2010 Victoria Fringe Festival was seeing Saltwater Inc’s production of Kurt Weill’s Mahagonny Songspiel. Joanna Hounsell had only recently formed Saltwater, and this was an ambitious project, complete with projections and choreography.  Now, she brings the music of one of musical theatre’s most-awarded composers and lyricists, Stephen Sondheim, to the stage with Side by Side by Sondheim. This revue features songs from well-known classics like Something Funny Happened on the Way to the Forum, Follies, Gypsy, Company, and West Side Story.

Cast members include: Sara-Jeanne Hosie (Little Shop of Horrors and A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline, Blue Bridge Repertory Theatre), Mike Delamont (God is a Scottish Drag Queen; Oklahoma!, Chemainus Theatre), Alison Roberts (West Side Story, Vancouver Opera), Alan Macdonald (Albert Herring, UBC Opera), Joseph Bulman (Mahagonny Songspiel, Mummer’s Masque and Seussical, Saltwater Inc), Kat Palmer (Fiddler on the Roof, Gateway Theatre)
