Being Alive- The Music of Stephen Sondheim starring Mia Matthews and Wayne LeGette is a musical revue of Sondheim’s beautiful relationship songs woven together into a fictionalized romance between LeGette and Matthews. It mixes the soaring melodies of early Sondheim such as Tonight, Maria, All I Need is the Girl, entertaining comedic songs –Getting Married Today, Buddy’s Blues and the more current gorgeous, rich music and lyrics (Move On, Losing My Mind, Being Alive) that have distinguished him as one of the most brilliant musical theater composers of our time.
