"The music, supervised by Stephen Brooker thunders through the vast space of Curve’s auditorium. It’s the largest to accompany a musical in the UK this year and it gave me a new found appreciation for delivering such an iconic score. All of the songs leave you with goosebumps, especially Sunset Boulevard and As If We Never Said Goodbye."

Stephen Sondheim's Old Friends - A Celebration
A tribute concert celebrating Sondheim will be staged at the Sondheim Theatre on Tuesday 3rd May.
For one night only 6 West End principals, with a 21 piece West End orchestra, led by world renowned musical supervisor Stephen Brooker, will be performing a fantastic repertoire of musical theatre classics.
"As far as the music itself, the score has been beautifully handled by Stephen Brooker and the orchestra – which can be seen (socially distant) in the pit – is superb. Sunset’s gorgeous filmic underscoring (played at full volume when I watched it at home) brought me to tears several times as I realised not only what had been achieved in this production but also just how much I missed live theatre."
